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.
Details & usage
*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. Ecostarts will suit any type of soil condition.
When purchasing a single Ecostart, it will be selected from a multiple pack (as demonstrated to the left; image for illustration purposes only), ranging from diameters of 57-73mm. Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee the diameter of the selected tube.
If you order more than one Ecostart you may find they are sent wrapped inside each other, they will need to be seperated from one another prior to fitting. The Ecostarts also come with pre-fitted, releasable ratchet ties for easy installation to square sawn tree stakes.
We offer these Tubex Ecostarts in heights of 60cm and 75cm.
