    I set up a gazebo frame with scaffold netting .... needs 3 lengths of netting to cover it .... i cable tied them together .... will have to find a better solution, and it might have to be fishing line or something to sew the lengths together ....

    I'm a bloke and did mine by hand with a ball of wool and a big, manly needle. Very easy to do.

    Mrs Growser sowed up several largish holes in ours, and anyway, it takes quite a determined insect to try and get through those little black holes anyway!
