    Fruit Cage Perfection

    Our fruit cage is cobbled together from various metal poles and some distinctly scrappy netting, erected (after a fashion) on our sloping allotment, so I felt deep envy when I visited Sarah Raven’s garden at Perch Hill and viewed her immaculate fruit cages.  Properly spaced bushes, not a weed in sight, ample room to move around and pick the fruit, flat ground – they were everything ours is not. Still our freezers are full of soft fruit, so we must be getting it right, even if the aesthetics are a bit lacking.
