Great Find for Covering Plants

Good morning everyone. I was at Big Lots yesterday and came across a collapsible mesh laundry hamper for only $8. I decided it would be perfect for covering plants in containers or on the ground, to protect from birds, or from the Phoenix sunshine. It worked out great. I will check the dollar stores and see if I can maybe get more. The $8 one is a nice size, 16 inches in diameter. It even folds away when I don't need it!
This is the bag it comes in if you want to check your local Big Lots
Here it is popped open and upside down
on top of a large pot
completely covering plant all the way to the ground
ready to be tucked away!

    This is a great idea to protect my dahlia plants from my chickens who love to eat the leaves, it will work on my roses as well as they will nibble on just about anything green, chickens can be very destructive in a garden! Great idea.
