Description

Spiral guards are an economical method of plant protection and are perfect for use with young, slender hedgerow plants. Whilst offering protection from damage caused by rabbits, the clear walls of the spiral provides an ideal microclimate for young plants; stimulating growth and ensuring that they get off to a good, thriving start.

Spiral guards are manufactured from recycled P.V.C and offer a life expectancy of over 4 years, which is sufficient time to get most young trees and hedgerow plants established.

We offer a clear spiral guard and a spiral guard with green tint. The difference between the two is purely aesthetic.

The base of plants should be sprayed to suppress weeds and reduce competition for nutrients. Spiral guards help with the process as they prevent herbicide from contact with the plants within.

Spiral guards need to be supported by bamboo canes – the plants alone will not support the guards.

Fitting spiral guards as part of the planting process is easy. Firstly, plant your plant in the desired location. Push a cane into the ground next to the plant, and simply slot the spiral guard over both the plant and the cane. Spiral guards can be removed from plants – subject to growth – after 3-5 years, once they are established.

You will find that the spiral guards are supplied in wraps of 5 - these need to be separated from one another prior to fitting.

Whilst spiral guards are suitable for most of the plants we stock, these should not be used with Holly or Laurel plants, as these require mesh guards or Tubex shrub shelters.
