JACK has released a range of products for the home garden that give different types of protection depending on the size and type of crop to be grown - and we think they’re pretty clever.
Here are our top picks for protecting your plants from pests without harming them.
JACK has two protective tunnels to choose from. The Insect Resistant Grow tunnel, which features a transparent fine mesh cover that filters sunlight and allows air and rainwater to pass through. It offers the same protection from birds, animals, insects and harsh weather. This tunnel is ideal for strawberries, tomatoes and leaf vegetables.
And the Protective Shade Grow Tunnel provides a shaded environment during the hot summer months.
A popular choice for smaller groups of veggies and herbs is the JACK all-weather cover. It filters direct sunlight while keeping pests out. The top section features the shade mesh, while the clear PVC sides keep plants and soil warmer in the colder months while retaining soil moisture.
