The Tubex Vine Original was (surprisingly!) the first Tubex vine shelter, and it remains our premier product for Viticulture. A first-class vine shelter, the Tubex Vine Original creates an improved growing environment and protects the vine - with potential for earlier fruiting.
A sturdy, longer lasting vine guard, the Tubex Vine Original is formulated to allow the optimum growing environment and is easy to install by simply firming into the ground and attaching to the bottom trellis wire using a twist tie. The improved micro-climate within Tubex Vine Original can produce stronger early growth, a stronger leader with fewer side shoots, and higher survival rates.
The Tubex Vine Original also provides protection against animal browsing, herbicide sprays and accidental damage during mechanical weeding. Tubex Vine Original comes in various sizes to accommodate different trellising methods.
Tubex Vine Original, the wider diameter, twin-wall, tubular construction shelter, with flared rim, manufactured from environmentally harmless polypropylene is supplied with with two holes at the top to accommodate trellis attachment. May be re-used.
