Clear spiral guards provide extra protection for young plants.


- Spirals measure 60cm x 4cm diameter
- Particularly suitable for slender young hedgerow plants
- Provide a barrier against damage from rabbits
- Protect against drift from weedkillers during spraying
- Create a microclimate around the young plant, sheltering it from extremes of weather and stimulating growth
- Expand as the tree grows, avoiding strangulation
- Made from recycled PVC
- Easy and quick to install
- Should last for over 4 years – enough time for the young plants to establish


A bamboo cane is recommended to support each spiral guard. If the guards are being fitted to small trees up to around 80cm height then a bamboo cane will be required to keep the plant and guard upright. No tie is required, just push the cane down next to the tree inside the guard.


Spiral guards are not suitable for 1ft / 30cm willow and poplar cuttings.

Delivery

Our bare root plants and cuttings are delivered between November and May (specific dates cannot be guaranteed) but we do encourage early planting for the best results.

Most orders are dispatched within 3-5 working days where stocks are available. If they are not available at the time of order you will be notified and an alternative delivery date discussed with you.We ship to mainland UK and the Isle of Wight (although surcharges may be incurred in some more remote areas). Our orders are generally sent out using a national courier but for local deliveries, we may use our own couriers. Orders can also be collected from the nursery by prior appointment and we are more than happy for you to do this if you prefer.

Our standard delivery charge is £15 plus VAT. This is for a next day delivery service in areas where this is available (i.e. mainland UK). For areas outside mainland UK, such as northern Ireland, Isle of Man, Channel Islands, Scottish islands and mainland Europe, we can often offer delivery but will need to confirm the costs of these with you, so please call us to discuss on 01404 811229.  

There's usually no need to wait in for a standard delivery, our couriers will leave it in a safe place for you. If there is somewhere in particular you would like it left, please let us know at the time of ordering. For taller plants or a larger volume (particularly root ball trees), a pallet may be required. We will let you know at the time of your order as this will usually incur an additional fee. 

On arrival you should try to plant as soon as possible but, if the weather makes this impossible, cuttings will remain viable somewhere cold for 4 weeks. A cold shed or outside is fine but if the weather turns warm then put them into a fridge if possible. If you are unable to plant the rooted trees within ten days of arrival then we suggest that you unpack the bale and cover the roots with soil in a shallow trench to keep them moist.

It is important to look after your trees as they mature so now click on After-Planting Care for some useful guide-lines.
