Mesh crop covers order form

Please note we are not a shop.  If you come to the BHU without prior arrangement there may be no one here.  To purchase mesh please order through the form below and then arrange a pickup time.

Commercial growers / farmers - if your considering testing mesh please contact me This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 021 0231 8901 as I can probably save you a lot of time and money and I am happy to have a short chat at no charge. 

Please read the information below on the price of mesh and the cost of delivery, and then fill in the form at the bottom of the page. 

The BHU is selling mesh as a service to home gardeners, lifestyle blockers and market gardeners, i.e. it is a side line to our normal business of science and education.  We therefore only have basic systems for handling sales, so we ask for your patience.  

Once you have submitted your order, an automatic confirmation email will be sent so you know your order has been recorded by the website, if you dont get this email within an hour of placing your order please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will check what went wrong.  The main issues we have are incorrect emails - please double check your email is correct.  Once a week, normally, on Wednesday morning, we email out invoices for orders received that week.   Payment is required prior to delivery: we accept cash, cheques or online bank transfers as payment, N.B. we do not take credit cards, as we are not a shop.  We normally pack on Mondays: payments that are received by 9:00 am Monday, are packed and couriered on Tuesday morning, with delivery varying from next day for Christchurch and surrounds to about three days for North Island, i.e., by the end of the week.  If your order is exceptionally urgent, please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and we will try to process your order ASAP but we cannot guarantee this.

Mesh pricing

The mesh is Cosio 'CROPSAFE NET' with a 0.6mm hole size and a standard width of 3.7 metres.

 Mesh is sold in standard lengths of 5, 10, 20, and 50 metres.  If you want multiple smaller pieces, eg two 10 m lengths mesh can be cut very easily with household scissors so pls order just one length.  Prices are:

Length  Width Area m2  Price incl. GST
5 metres 3.7 meters 18.5  $50.00
10 metres 3.7 meters  37.0  $93.00
20 metres 3.7 meters  74.0  $180.00
50 metres 3.7 meters 185.0 $400.00
100 metres 3.7 meters 370.0 $800.00
150 metres 3.7 meters 555.0 $1,200.00
200 metres 3.7 meters 740.0 $1,600.00

If you want to purchase more than 50 metres the form below allows purchases of up to four rolls.  If you want to order more than four rolls please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . The total price for multiple lots of 50 meter rolls is the single roll price times the number of rolls. This is because each roll is the maximum size/weight the courier will deliver and the 50 m roll is already discounted so there is no extra discount for ordering multiple rolls. 

Delivery costs

Delivery is via courier or pickup from the BHU at Lincoln, Canterbury (see our contact page for map location). Pickup from the BHU is free! (but see the note at the top of the page about the BHU not being a shop and not calling without and appointment). Courier delivery is divided into three areas:  'Canterbury' (i.e. local), rest of South Island and North Island.
Canterbury is defined according to Fastway Couriers (see this Fastway PDF info sheet for details (N.B. prices listed are ex. GST)) and includes everything from Kaikoura as the northern limit, through Hanmer Springs, Craigieburn, Lake Coleridge, Geraldine and Timaru as the southern limit, and everything to the east of them.  We will confirm your delivery area when we process your order. Our / Fastways decision on your delivery area and cost is final. If you are not happy with that decision you are welcome to cancel the order. Rural deliveries, i.e., with an RD address have a extra charge, regardless if your area is Canterbury, rest of South Island or North Island. Delivery costs are as follows, all are GST inclusive:

Ordering Form

As we are selling mesh as a service to NZ gardeners and small growers that is outside the normal educational and research activities of the BHU (i.e. we are not a regular shop), most of the ordering and invoicing system is manual.  We normally download the weeks orders and send out invoices on Wednesday morning.  If you dont receive an invoice by Thursday evening please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. so we can follow up.  Payments that are received by the following Monday morning will be dispatched Tuesday morning.  It may therefore take a week or two between placing an order and receiving your mesh.  If your order is truly urgent please email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to let us know and we will try and be accommodating. We guarantee your privacy: We will never sell, rent, or give away your details to any outside party, ever.  Please see our Privacy Policy for full details. Fields marked with an '*' are required.  We need a physical delivery address for the mesh, a PO Box is not suitable. We also need your full phone number including area code for the courier, and also in case there is a problem with your email. We will communicate by email, unless there is an urgent or complex problem in which case we may need to phone you. Please indicate your delivery location as well as your address details as this helps us a lot.  Please make sure if you are an RD delivery you select an RD delivery location.
