I just wondered how long i should keep my brassiccas covered for? I
have Kale, Calabrese and various cabbages covered with Enviromesh and
just wondered if they should stay like this until they are harvested or
can they be uncovered?
Should i also keep my taller brassiccas covered i.e. Brussels and
Purple Sprouting Broc? If so how do people do this?
Thanks for your time
There is no reason at all why you should not continue to leave the
brassicas covered if that is possible. After all, depending on you
will continue to get protection against predators until harvest time.
So , I definitely leave my cabbages under the mesh.
But there must be enough slack in the mesh cover to allow for the growth
of the taller plants. In my case there was not. So last week I removed
the enviromesh cover and immediately replaced it with a sufficiently
high cage I made out of stout canes and netting to protect against the
butterflies and birds.
