Neville shares an easy and creative way to protect your edible plants from pests without using chemicals.

  • Create an exclusion cover using a fine mesh to prevent butterflies, moths, white flies and beetles from getting anywhere near your veggie garden.
  • Holman’s EzyFit pipe and fittings are made from lightweight, recycled, Australian manufactured PVC.
  • They’re available in 15mm, 20mm, 25mm and 40mm, with a wide range of crosses and joints.
  • These fit together without the need for glue and can be used to create a frame.
  • To attach the mesh, use EzyFit clips. These will clamp over the pipes and hold the mesh in place.
  • Being lightweight, the frame will be easy to move when needed.
  • A cover can also offer your vegetables protection from the hot summer sun.
  • The creative possibilities with the EzyFit range are endless. You can build a soccer goal for the kids, a fishing rod stand, a ped bed and even a cubby house.
