Tubex Ecostarts are the most economical solution for rapid hedgerow and woodland establishment and best suited to slender plants. Tubex Ecostarts improve the microclimate around the plant, thereby encouraging growth during the establishment period.

Tubex Ecostarts also protect against wildlife damage – notably voles, rabbits and hares (depending on the size of the Ecostart) – and will ensure that herbicide does not come into contact with the plant during spraying.

The choice of Ecostart depends on the wildlife present; for protection against voles and rabbits, we recommend the 60cm Ecostarts. Where there is a risk of hares damaging the plants, opt for the 75cm Ecostarts.

The Ecostarts come in nests of 5 tubes, with the tubes varying in diameter from 57mm to 73mm, and will suit any type of soil condition. They come with pre-fitted, releasable ratchet ties for easy attachment to a square sawn stake.
