Isn’t it just the way? You choose your soft fruit bushes, nurture them tenderly throughout the year, and then, just as they are set to reward you with luscious strawberries, redcurrants, blueberries or whatever, the birds get there first and pinch your crop. Well, we say fight back, with fruit cages and vegetable cages!
Yes, a fruit cage will keep those pesky birds away from your lovely berries. They’re pretty easy to assemble and will be worth their weight in gold when you’re picking summer soft fruits for tea. Vegetable cages, as you might imagine, do a similar job, keeping out pests such as butterflies, which are after your brassicas!

Aluminium Fruit Cages
Aluminium Fruit Cages – our Aluminium Fruit Cages have a natural, non-rusting finish and are the most cost effective Fruit Cage for crop protection; supplied with heavy duty side netting, high quality anti-bird roof netting and secured with rigid expanding connectors, you certainly get a lot of cage for your money. And we’re rather proud of the fact that the framework – 25mm diameter uprights and top rods – we supply as standard makes our cages, to the best of our knowledge, the strongest in their class.

Timber Fruit Cages
Timber Fruit Cages – our Timber Fruit Cages have a rugged and natural look as we appreciate that some more traditional fruit and vegetable growing gardens need a cage of more rustic, kitchen garden appearance. What isn’t set in the past is the design and manufacturing techniques we use – the substantial 102mm (4″) tanalised round uprights are the cornerstones of the cage and the 102mm (4″) half round roof supports complete the structure; cover with the high quality netting we supply as standard and sit back and enjoy the harvest!

Steel Vegetable and Strawberry Cages
Steel Vegetable and Strawberry Cages – the Steel Vegetable and Strawberry Cages we offer are designed in-house and manufactured to the same specification as the heavy-duty Steel Fruit Cages, as well as being tried and very much tested in our own Kitchen Garden. Choose from a permanent version or the freestanding model – which is ideal for crop rotation – and enjoy the protection the cage brings along with the 1.2m of growing height.
Aluminium Vegetable and Strawberry Cages
Aluminium Vegetable and Strawberry Cages – The Aluminium Vegetable Cages and Aluminium Strawberry Cages both offer cut-price seasonal protection to your plants, and because most models use the versatile ‘Build-A-Ball’ system for connecting the aluminium uprights and top rods, the structures are easy to erect, dismantle and store after use. For a more heavy-duty – but just as mobile – solution, we’ve introduced a Porta-Cage made from 25mm square aluminium but the wall thickness of the aluminium tubing we use (1.2mm on 12.7mm tubes, 2mm on the 16mm version) is to the best of our knowledge the strongest available, unlike some inferior products offered by our competitors – and as a result our Build-a-Ball constructions are, in our opinion, the most robust on the market.
Build Your Own Cages
Build Your Own Cages – our Build Your Own Cages are designed for grow your own gardeners who want a flexible fruit and vegetable crop protection system that comes in on budget. Using the extra strength aluminium tubing and versatile Build-a-Ball connectors, constructing a cage to meet your requirements is a simple task – and erecting, extending, dismantling and storing a structure made from these components couldn’t be easier. Use our swivel clips with the tubing to make frames for peas, beans and other climbing plants and when you take into account the wall thickness of the aluminium tubing we use (1.2mm on 12.7mm tubes, 2mm on the 16mm version) is to the best of our knowledge the strongest available, unlike some inferior products offered by our competitors, there really is only one place to shop!
Fruit Cage and Vegetable Cage Accessories
