Tubex's first vine shelter, and still their premier product for viticulture, the Tubex Vine Original is a first class vine shelter that creates an improved growing environment offering the potential for earlier fruiting, whilst also protecting the vine from animal browsing, herbicide sprays and accidental damage during mechanical weeding.
A sturdy, long-lasting vine guard with an estimated life of five years minimum (the longevity of the shelter is dependent on site and weather conditions, but is typically between five and seven years), the Vine Original is installed by simply firming into the ground and attaching to the bottom trellis wire using a twist tie (not included).
The Tubex Vine Original provides an improved micro-climate which can aid stronger early growth, a stronger leader with fewer side shoots and higher survival rates.
The Vine Original offers a wider diameter than the Tubex Ecovine and Tubex Vinewrap, making it suitable for larger-leafed vines.
Available in heights of 60cm and 75cm, with a diameter of 90-100mm.
