Protection guide

Stake Required*

Protection Against



Vole, Rabbit




*It is advisible to use a longer stake for sandier, lighter soils.

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.
