Tubex Easywrap 50mm
The Tubex easywrap hedging shelter is a twin-walled shelters designed for hedging and any other situation where lateral growth is important low down. The tube is cut with an overlap so that as the tree grows and becomes girthy enough to withstand some browsing, the easywrap expands and opens up so that branches can start to grow sidewards. They are normally supported with a cane. As a solid shelter, Tubex Easywraps are stronger than spirals and will withstand determined browsing and high winds more easily than spirals. In dry or cold areas, the Tubex Easywrap also retains moisture and heat around the tree more effectively than spirals, ensuring better survival rates.
When installing the Tubex Easywrap, insert the cane 1/3 into the ground and ensure that the top of the cane is below the top of the Tubex Easywrap. Push the Easywrap shelter gently into the ground a few cm to ensure voles do not burrow under it. We can provide Tubex Achorfixes for windy situations, but if there is a risk of the Tubex shelters blowing away, it would probably be better to opt for a Tubex Ecostart and stake.
