Hi everyone.

I am trying to create hoops for fleeced/plastic covered areas in my raised beds. Can anyone advise what they use to create the hoops from?

I suppose each length would need to be about 1-2 metres. Is their a source somewhere for rigid wire that can be bent to shape or is some type of plastic piping suitable?

Thanks

I use 1/2" water pipe to. Light gauge is good enough.
