Pea/Bean Netting?

Does anyone use it? That plastic square stuff.

I got myself some jute netting once and it only lasted one season and cost a fortune.

I need to use the nets to keep my flowers straight. Just planted up some foxgloves and some campanula.

For the dahlias I have used old poultry netting ( some squares are a bit small but I can keep reusing it so that's good for me.

I need mine at least 1.5 metres wide...my beds are 14 & 30ish foot long - any idea where I can get some at a decent price.

To be honest Scarlet, the netting I use is all begged from building sites. They're building a new massive unit at work and I went to speak to the guys working on site and they pointed me to both fine blue netting and bigger netting - the orange square holes. I grabbed a bootful.
That's the first time in about five years I've had to do that - the netting I had on the allotment before I moved got nicked before I could clear my plot, but I'd had that for probably five years now.

I use this stuff for peas, it's very strong. Had it for 3 years and think it will last for a long time.

I use commercial fishing net/ crab pot netting that I find washed up on the beach for my peas.
I hate that plastic stuff. It doesn’t last very long , it breaks really easily. It horrible.

Yes...that's why I bought the jute netting but it's expensive and doesn't last. I don't want to buy new every year. 

I have used two 50 metre electric fences... they are B perfect, strong, can use more than once and I'm repurposing something I already used for years.

Think you - they also do a "fence" that comes in 20metre lengths- I think it looks the same stuff but in yellow... I'm goi g to get a couple of those I think.

I've got the same netting mine just had its second year,  it doesn't tangle like plastic netting so its easy to pack away and reuse.

I've used the green mesh like Bren's nd TMTT vertically for a couple of years for peas and beans, it's manageable and robust and is definitely reusable.

I use square mesh wire netting. Had it for years and it works fine. I use metal tension bars for chain link fencing to support it.
