Protecting your small plants from animals!

Updated: Jun 16, 2021

Wire cloches have been used for centuries

to protect baby plants from grazing animals.



In this 5 minute video I show you a super simple way to create a barrier for your small seedlings so that they can grow for a while protected. Once they have gotten too tall you can even open the top to allow it to keep growing, while still protecting the base.




We have used these up at Aquarian Acres to protect some Sunchokes, small fruit trees, lilacs, etc. They really do work!
