  • Damaged Ultra-fine mesh

    I’ve just put a piece of ultra-fine Environmesh through the washing machine and it has chaffed against the drum and there are now some holes in the mesh. Agghhhh!

    I've washed other pieces in the machine before with no trouble, but this one was just too big. :-(

    Any ideas how I can repair it? I think I need to stick/seal some patches over the holes as it needs to keep it's ultrafine mesh qualities as I use it to keep Allium Weevil off my onions & leeks.

    Not sure what adhesive to use. Anybody got any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    No idea - but are you any good with a needle and thread?

      I use a good duct tape and tape both sides, so that the tape sticks to itself through the hole.
      Be sure to use one with a good glue, though. The rubbish ones just peel off in the sun (it seems to be sun more than water that does for them). I find Wilko-own stuff to be very good.

        You could stick a patch over the damaged area using clear silicone sealant. Just make sure it squishes right through the mesh.

          I have fine enviromesh and if I can't darn it I use a bit of scrap mesh and patch the hole using a running stich
          it may be a struggle to reach the top, but once your over the hill your problems start.
