Protect your plantings with plant guards, EmGuard’s have been shown to greatly improve the chances of survival and promote growth in plants.
They assist in reducing on-going maintenance time and costs, protect plants from predators like hares and pukekos, help in identifying where plants are in a planted area, reduce water loss and provide a micro-climate favourable to growth.
They are particularly valuable in the first year of establishment especially where root trainer or small grade plants are used.

Coated with a food safe and FDA compliant moisture barrier, has a high bursting strength, a PH of 7.00-8.00 and is fully recyclable. Trials have shown that the EmGuard ™ will withstand some inundation over a period of time and will last for up to one year in the field in normal riparian conditions.
