SKU: Shrub Shelters
Vigilis shrub shelter tubes are rigid, twin-walled shelters which are considerably wider than our tree shelters. They have been designed to provide protection for new shrubs and bushes and help to improve their growth. The key function of our shrub shelters is to protect the shrubs from browsing wildlife, as well as limiting damage caused by strong winds, herbicides, cold weather or water stress. They have a flared upper rim to minimise abrasion of the shrub's stem.
The twin wall tube provides a micro-climate within the shelter to create a warmer environment for the shrub, keeping moisture within the shelter and reducing the water stress imposed on the plants. Vigilis shrub shelter tubes come with pre-fitted releasable tree ties (cable ties) for fixing to timber tree stakes.
Which shrub shelter do you need?
- Rabbits: 60cm
- Hares: 75cm
- Increased growth due to the micro-climate inside the shelter (“greenhouse effect”)
- Improved survival rates
- Protection from animals and mechanical damage
- Protection from herbicides
- Accelerated plant growth to advance the first harvesting
- Better localisation of the plant at the early stage of plantations in strongly weeded areas
- Avoids abrasive damage on stem due to the flared top rim
- Quick and easy installation
Our Shrub Shelters are perfect to use with our:
- Heights available: 60cm and 75cm
- Tube diameters: 130-160mm
- Tree ties: 1 tie for 60cm shelters
Features & benefits:
- Manufactured from UV-stabilised and photodegradable polypropylene
- Twin-wall tube construction
- Flared upper rim to minimise stem abrasion
- Pre-fitted with releasable tree ties
- The specific green colour allows the correct balance of light wavelengths to be¬†absorbed by the plant - a process called photomorphogenesis
- UV-stabilised to provide an estimated lifespan of 5-7 years (can vary depending on location, climate and site conditions)
