The Bio Spiral is the environmentally friendly choice for hedge planting protection where collection and recycling is not possible. This is a naturally biodegradable hedging spiral.
The first bio-based tree spiral, manufactured by Rainbow, that has passed all required tests against EU guidelines at an independent laboratory and is classed as fully compostable. Over the last few years, the Bio Spiral has been field tested in several trials across the UK and Europe. This has resulted in a product that is suitable to last for >3 years at the typical range of temperature extremes that have been found in forests.
Bio Spirals provide efficient low-cost protection from rabbits and herbicides; and often do not need additional tree stake or fastenings to support them.
Wrapped tightly around the tree, Bio Spirals are beneficial in exposed sites and on small planting stock such as Hawthorn, Blackthorn or Crabapple.
Survival and growth rates of trees tend to be higher if using solid Tubex shelters such as the Tubex Ecostart or Tubex Easywrap or Tubex Nature Standard (Biodegradable)
