This butterfly netting will serve you very well indeed and will prevent the most persistent of cabbage whites getting to your crops. Being both flexible and tensile, and in a green colour that is pleasant on the eye, this netting will drape over hoops and cages without springing back before you’ve pegged it down, so very easy to handle. Highly recommended.
ULTRA FINE VEGGIEMESH INSECT NETTING
Ultra-fine Veggiemesh will protect your plants from insect damage, including pests such as flea beetle, allium leaf miner and whitefly. The mesh size is 0.88mm x 0.88mm with 90% light passage and air passage 95%. The pack sizes come with hemmed edges but if you are by the meter the cut edges will not be hemmed.
This is perfect netting for a range of pests that will attack your crops and cause damage. Particularly good for crops of leeks, onions, carrots, radishes and even to keep whitefly off cabbages. The mesh size will keep these pests out but will still allow in sufficient light and air for healthy growth.

This is just the right kind of netting to keep hungry pigeons off your crops, particularly brassicas like cabbage and cauliflower, plants they can decimate if they are left unprotected. The netting is strong, flexible, is made to last and offers good value for money.
