Wire Plant Cloches
Use chicken wire to create an attractive cloche for plants. Transform this hardworking mesh by molding it into a cover to shield plants from hungry pests.
Traditionally, chicken wire is used to confine poultry for their own good and fence in gardens, protecting plants from hungry rabbits and other critters. It’s no wonder the inexpensive hexagonal mesh proves essential for a gardener’s toolshed. Chicken wire is lightweight yet durable, flexible, and malleable enough for shaping. The wire netting forms a practical see-through cloche that is an interesting, ethereal accent in the garden.
