Tubex Shrub Shelters provide the perfect growing environment for young plants, whilst preventing against damage by voles, rabbits and hares for increased survival rates. The shrub shelters also offer protection from herbicide during spraying.
They are constructed with a durable twin-wall and are pre-fitted with releasable rachet ties and Tubex laserline, which allows the tree to break free. A flared rim also minimises stem abrasion.
Shrub Shelter Height
Shrub Shelters offer more space for plants to develop – preferred by bushier plants such as Laurel, Hazel, Dogwood and Holly.
The choice of Shrub Shelter depends entirely on the wildlife present; for protection against voles and rabbits, we recommend the 60cm Shrub Shelters. Where there is a risk of hares damaging the plants, opt for the 75cm Shrub Shelters.
Shrub Shelters should be well anchored with a square sawn stake, which should be knocked into the ground with a hammer to, at least, a third of the height of the stake. It is important to ensure that the stake is below the flared rim at the top of the shelter.
You will find that the shrub shelters are supplied in nests of 2 - these need to be separated from one another prior to fitting.
