It’s time for another edition of favorite things in the garden! I’ve used these wire cloches for years and for a multitude of purposes. They’ve protected seeds that I wanted to make sure no birds got to, been atop young whips that rabbits have been eyeing and, most recently, protecting new growth that I was nervous the duck and/or chickens may be attracted too!

I love that the cloches are not only a very practical choice but also look fantastic in the garden! The cloches are made of galvanized steel and mine have lasted many years (with the exception of the one that inexplicably got run over!). Bonus that they go down in price if you buy one or more!
