Q - Will my AcryliCloche® Garden Cloche blow away in the wind ?
A - AcryliCloche® are sturdy and will not move in normal winds. AcryliCloche® Tent or Low Barn Cloche 500 for example weighs approximately 2.1lb or 944g so are not likely to blow away under normal conditions. You can earth up around your cloche and the end pieces to stop wind getting under them and lifting them off. If you have a very exposed site then you can put some garden netting over them and peg through the netting into the earth to secure them.
Watering my plants
Q - How do I water the plants under my AcryliCloche® ?
A - Your AcryliCloche® will trap moisture which will condense and run back into the earth or simply lift your cloche, water then replace. Otherwise it is better to leave your cloches in place and soak over the top of them. Water will run down the sides and give the earth a really good soak encouraging the plants to grow deep roots for their water.

A - End packs contain squares of flexible PVC and clips. Place the PVC loosely over the ends and press the clips on.
