A fruit cage or vegetable cage is an investment! However a good quality  fruit / vegetable cage will repay itself many times over the years.

Protect Your Crop

You can protect a large fruit and vegetable garden for the price of a small greenhouse. Without a fruit cage you are likely to lose most of your crop to birds!

We would suggest that it is a false economy to purchase a cheap, flimsy fruit cage, as these tend to deteriorate quickly. Knowle Nets fruit / vegetable cages have been developed over 50 years and are built to last.

Made To Order

Every fruit / vegetable cage is made to order to fit your fruit/vegetable plot. We can supply almost any size or shape, plus they can be easily put together in just a few hours.

Black Fruit Cage

Who uses our fruit / vegetable cages?

Our fruit cages and vegetable cages are used by amateurs and professionals alike including National Trust gardens, research institutes, fruit farms and market gardens. They are supplied as a complete package consisting of framework, netting, and fixings. Please note fruit cages / vegetable cages are not squirrel proof.

Fruit and Vegetable Cage Framework

There is a choice of natural finish aluminium or galvanised and black powder coated high tensile strength steel. The maximum distance between uprights is 3.0m (10 feet ).

The joints are our design and have been developed from our experience over many years. They comprise a stainless steel bolt and nut which will not rust and a tough nylon cap and collar. The joint can accommodate any angle. Our framework is GUARANTEED for 10 years against failure due to corrosion.

Fruit Vegetable Cage Netting

Netting

The roof nets of our fruit cages are made from black polyethylene. Black is the least visible colour in the garden and gives maximum ultraviolet resistance. Our standard fruit cage roof net is a 2 ply woven diamond mesh net with a mesh size of 19mm (¾ inch). It is very strong yet light and will give many years bird protection. Our side nets are made from black high density polyethylene. These are moulded nets which hang straight and neat. The mesh is 19mm (¾ inch) square
