There are many threats to your plants, but you can protect them with a cloche. Acting like low, portable greenhouses, cloches heat the soil and your plant to encourage germination and ripening of vegetables. Cloches also protect your plants from pests, diseases, and bird damage. As well as bad weather including rain, hail, frost, and wind.
Traditional glass cloches provide your plants with the most light but may need propping up to allow for some ventilation. Breathable mesh cloches are also available which allow for better air circulation. Different sizes of cloches are available to cover one or more plants depending on your plant needs.
