Does anyone know where i can buy these in dublin? I think i need a few for my cabbage and cauliflower. or maybe i could buy the netting somewhere and build a barrier.

Would you be better off buying the netting separate and errect a small cage around yours using canes (with bottles on the top)? Just suggesting that because I done that last year and it worked out well. No caterpillars. I think the netting on the type you are looking at will still allow the butterflies to lay some eggs on the leaves.

what are you trying to prevent? For cabbage root fly, try a disc of cardboard, approximately 8" diameter. The fly can't lay its eggs then. For large and small white butterflies (cabbage whites), you will need a barrier. Try making a hoop system over your bed, about 18" high or more, to allow for growth, then cover with fleece. I don't bother with that. I just go out early and squish all the eggs and caterpillars.
