London, United Kingdom
I have a question about netting/fleece. When is it best used in the vegetable garden?? Let me explain...Peas for example have flowers that need to be pollinated by bees and the like, yes? So when should they be netted so We get the peas and not the birds? Cabbages need fine netting to keep off the cabbage white butterfly These I think can be netted quite soon after the plants start to grow. Carrots netted straight away ?? to stop carrot fly. Is it better to use netting or fleece, or enviro mesh?
