Hedge and Tree Planting Accessories

Strong healthy plants that are well tended establish fast and resist disease. So your first line of defence should therefore always be to improve soil quality and ensure adequate watering. because prevention is always better - and cheaper - than the cure. If the site is suited to the plant, if the ground is prepared well, if the plants are looked after properly after planting, if there are no pets and if good garden hygiene is maintained then you should not really need anything from this section of the site. 

If only...  every gardener knows that life is just not like that so this is the place to buy protection from vermin, food for your plants and chemicals and other sundries. We stock pretty much everything you need to plant and protect your purchase successfully.

Choosing Planting Accessories

Planting accessories do three things. They help new plants to establish and then grow well, they protect plants from being eaten by rabbits, deer, and so on, and they prevent or cure diseases and pests.
Rootgrow is what makes your plants establish as well as possible, bonemeal is a great bonus. Use an organic mulch mat or Mypex fabric to suppress the weeds and you are set for a trouble free start.
Protection includes spirals, which need bamboo canes, and tree guards, which need stakes. 60-80cms tall guards protect against rabbits, hare and muntjac. For roe deer and bigger, guards must be 120 cms tall, or you are wasting your money.
Disease will happen less if planting and aftercare are good. The list of chemicals available is dwindling, as is their efficacy, but we stock a range that covers most situations.

How to use Planting Accessories

Always exercise caution when using Planting Accessories. Chemicals almost always have some toxic effect and should be handled and administered in accordance with their manufacturer's instructions. This applies equally to fertilisers, where too much of a good thing can really damage a plant.

Accessories that protect and support plants have been produced with low cost in mind. So handle them with care and gloves. Stakes will have splinters, spirals can have sharp edges that cut and so on.
