Ordered, delivered earlier than predicted and no issues whatsoever with order process. Re products: I ordered two PoppaDomes for veg growing with the covers, additional fleece and Butterfly and bug netting. Plus points: The dome was simple to erect. It’s basically a tent frame, super quick to put up. Both survived the insane wind on the SW coast-and that was 70mph. They didn’t fly off or buckle. With butterfly and bug net used-rain easily penetrates so no dry spots. They don’t look awful. Veg (spinach, summer squash, fennel, courgettes, asparagus, peas/broad beans, artichokes and especially tomatoes and cucumbers) have thrived in them, showing that they receive enough light even with two nets. Spiders get in easily-decimating the greenfly without a need for chemicals! Negative points: Spiders get in easily-don’t walk in without waving a stick in front of you first. OMG. That first day taught me a valuable lesson! 😆 The dome covers don’t have two-way zips. A real oversight methinks. Every cover has a zip-so getting in and out with three one-way zips is a bit of a faff. Trying to fling the additional covers over the top of basic Dome frame is not easy. Neighbours will have heard a lot of swearing! 😆 Despite all attempts-and the Domes being installed on absolutely level ground, the dome covers do not exclude butterflies. The covers are all the same size with the peg points at the same place. Butterflies have been getting in somehow- Brassica crops, less than optimal. I tried a line of bricks around the edges but even that didn’t work. The zip edges on the bug net covers are already fraying on the seams. I doubt they’ll last another season. The peg point covers are starting to rust after four months. Despite being pegged to a gravel path with excellent drainage. Overall- I question the longevity of the covers and considering the price of replacement covers, I’m wary to bother replacing them. But I think the frame itself should last years and will withstand our weather fluctuations safely. Ideas for Harrod: run velcro along the main butterfly net and supply the bug net in sections so there’s only one zip for entry. Make the bug net cover wider and slightly bigger so Butterflies can’t simply land and lay. Weight the bug net base edge or velcro it to standard net-The swines can get in!
