The TUBEX Easywrap can be slipped over the plant and the bamboo cane, and will expand as the plant grows.
We also supply the TUBEX Vinewrap which is basically a wider diameter version of the Easywrap and provides extra space for the plant - well worth considering.
For exposed sites consider using the TUBEX Ecostart which is pre-fitted with a releasable tie.

If the Bio Spirals are left in the environment they will degrade over time due to the bacteria found in soil or due to enzymatic reactions. Alternatively, they can be inserted into an industrial composting unit which will degrade them within 6 months.
