Good quality 90cm (3') bamboo canes & 60cm (2') Tubex spiral guards (50mm wide) are supplied in multiples of 10 of each. You position the cane as close as possible to the plant, then coil the guard around the plant and cane starting at the bottom and working up.
The guards provide protection from nibbling rabbits. If there is no risk whatsoever of rabbits, then there is no need to have them and the plants will bush out better.
The guards may be clear or green in colour.
These are only sold in conjunction with the bare-rooted hedgerow plants or hedgerow collections.
