CABBAGE (BRASSICA) COLLARS (Pack 30)
[BROL]

CABBAGE (BRASSICA) COLLARS (Pack 30)
 £2.70 
These collars fit around the stems of brassica plants to protect them from the Cabbage Root Fly which lays its eggs on the stem. This happens when the wind rocking newly planted plants causes a gap around the stem at soil level. The Cabbage Root Fly enters this gap and lays her eggs. When the eggs hatch the maggots enter the stem and roots and eat them, killing the plant.

When the collar is in place the fly cannot lay its eggs in the desired spot so will go away and lay eggs elsewhere.

As the plant grows and the stem thickens, the Cabbage Collar opens to avoid any restrictions to growth.

Also keeps the soil round the plant warm and moist and helps to control weed growth.

They are completely organic and biodegradable.

Each collar is 74mm (3 inch) in diameter.

 

After planting and firming the plant in the ground, slide the Cabbage Collar round the stem, where it it fits snuggly and moves with the plant as it blows in the wind.

The hole around the stem is completely covered, preventing the fly laying her eggs.

As the plant grows and the stem thickens, the Cabbage Collar opens to avoid any restrictions to growth.

Also keeps the soil round the plant warm and moist and helps to control weed growth.
