Heavy duty fruit cage including netting

Heavy duty fruit cage including netting £129.99
There is a clue in the name! Because of their size, these self-assembly fruit cages are more likely to remain as a permanent rather than temporary feature in the kitchen garden. The supports are made from 25mm square aluminium tubing which is light but very strong, which means that if you do need to move it, it is relatively easy with the help of one or more people. The cage has a 20mm mesh netting which is very robust and pigeon proof! It is uv stable however in very strong, prolonged, sunshine it may fade to a slightly lighter green. Please note the wooden planks are not included (neither is the lady and the spade.) Dimensions – Available in 3 sizes 2 meters high x 2 meters wide x 2 meters long 2 meters high x 2 meters wide x 4 meters long 2 meters high x 4 meters wide x 4 meters long

Euphorbia wallichii (spurge)

Euphorbia wallichii (spurge) £7.99
Position: full sun Soil: moist, fertile, well-drained garden soil Rate of growth: fast growing Flowering period: May to August Other features: white-veined, dark green leaves, Hardiness: fully hardy A variable, but sturdy form that has white-veined, dark-green leaves, often with a purple-flushed edge, and bright yellow flowerheads throughout the summer. This spurge looks great in a planting scheme based on hot, vibrant colours and will prefer a spot in full sun, although it is tolerant of a little light shade. Garden care: After flowering remove the faded flower-heads. When working with spurges always wear gloves since the milky sap is poisonous and a potential skin irritant.
