Tubex Shrub Shelterguard Mesh Tubes provide a sheltered environment to encourage the early growth of shrubs, whilst protecting against browsing animals, particularly rabbits. The Shrub Shelterguard Mesh Tubes are manufactured from recycled plastic mesh with a 12mm mesh aperture, and a clear polythene film lining creates a micro-climatic environment for plants.
The clear polythene film provides added protection from wind and herbicide spray, and allows light to penetrate, acting like a greenhouse to encourage early shrub growth.
Tubex Shrub Shelterguard Mesh Tubes will photo-degrade in two stages. The polythene film lining will degrade after approximately three growing seasons, to leave the free draining mesh tube to continue to protect against animal browsing and offer support to the plant. The Shrub Shelterguard Mesh Tube will photo-degrade after five to seven years, as the shrub grows to fill the tube.
The Shelterguard Mesh Tubes have a smooth top edge to prevent abrasion and a staggered weld line, to help with the drainage of water from inside the tube.
Details & usage
Mesh Tube Height
*It is advisible to use a longer stake for sandier, lighter soils.
When purchasing a single tube, it will be selected from a multiple pack (as demonstrated to the left; image for illustration purposes only), ranging from diameters of 130-160mm or 170-200mm, depending on size purchased. Unfortunately we are unable to guarantee the diameter of the selected tube.
If you order more than one tube you may find they are sent wrapped inside each other, they will need to be seperated from one another prior to fitting. The tubes also come with pre-fitted ties, for easy installation to square sawn tree stakes.
We offer these Tubex Shrub Shelterguard Mesh Tubes with a height of 60cm.
