Gardman Fruit Cage - Large
3.0 / 5.0
The actual frame wasn't too hard to put together for one person; however, the netting takes two people who can and will work together well. The netting gets stuck on the little pegs that hold the frame together, so one person is unhooking the netting while the other is trying to hold it in place or it will fall off and you have to start over again. All in all, I think that it will work well, but I don't know if it can be taken apart again.

I bought this because of bunnies and squirrels that demolished my garden last year. It is large enough to make four 60" long rows so I have green beans, peas, and cucumber in it. I wish it had been about twice the size. If you are using this for tomato plants, you'll probably be able to comfortable plant 4 of them and nothing else.This cage is tall which is nice with a zipper front. It was a booger trying to position the netting so it fit well on all sides. However, we found it best to find the zipper and stretch out the netting on the lawn before attempting to place over the cage.I am unsure this $150 investment will make it through a season. I recommend that if you do get one, that you also buy chicken wire that you dig down into ground and wrap all the way around this. The bunnies are attempting to chew their way in as of week two of my cage being up. I am using moth balls to discourage them in the interim before I go and invest in chicken wire.If your bunnies are not as determined as mine to break into Fort Knox, then you may be fine. My garden is out of my sight which makes it tough to monitor. If the cage netting had been made of something more durable, then it would be great. So, for now I need to do everythig possible to prevent new holes in the netting:(
