Easy to use, remove and reuse

Blue-X Grapevine Shelters are constructed using a patented two piece method. The grow-tubes are packed flat and the two pieces can be assembled very quickly. 

To assemble a single sheet of blue plastic film (Part A) is rolled up and inserted into a blue-tinted poly sleeve (Part B) open at both ends. When the Grapevine Shleter is no longer needed on the vine, it can be removed by slitting the poly sleeve (Part B). Once removed, the poly sleeve (Part B can be recycled. The polyester film (Part A) can then be stored for reuse the next season. Replacement poly sleeves can be purchased separately if needed. 

How to protect plants with the Blue-X Vine Shelters

Immediately after planting the Blue-X Vine Shelters can be put over the plant. The vine shelters can be attached to a bamboo pole, stake, wire or trellis to maintain the upright position. This will protect the tender foliage from "critter" damage as well as allow an herbicide to be sprayed aroun the plants to minimize competition from other vegetation.
