We are trialing this more environmentally friendly way of protecting the peach trees on one of the outdoor trees - if it works well we will try to cover the other outdoor peach tree next year as well. The cover has ventilation vents in the top and sides to allow air circulation and the sides are removable and will be pinned back as the weather improves and to allow pollination by insects. The cover will be closely monitored and removed in the spring to allow the tree to fully develop through the spring, summer and autumn seasons.
