Netting the fruit cage.

A beautiful crisp winter day, with a sprinkling of snow on the ground, but the wind was too strong to skin our propagation tunnel so we opted to attach the netting to our new fruit cage instead. Our plan is to cover the ground with woven black mulch (mipex) and plant fruit bushes through holes to minimise weeding - raspberries, blackcurrants, loganberries, and gooseberries.
Laying out the roof (we found this the most difficult step, and ended up tying each mesh corner to each cage corner, then choosing a corner and working away from it along both sides, perpendicular to each other).

Mesh roof on and fastened.

Simon and Natalie fastening side mesh to the uprights.

Almost finished.....
