Description

Up to 150% faster growth! These clever little plant sleeves are designed to shelter tender young vines from harsh sun damage, creating a microclimate for each plant that not only helps it survive, but thrive — with a highly desirable even root-to-shoot ratio. The patented two-piece construction has a sophisticated technical design that allows the perfect blend of blue and red light to penetrate the grow-tube wall, which increases the rate of photosynthesis in the early stages of grape-vine establishment. The result: stronger root development, stem/trunk caliper growth and faster overall growth. Long-lasting tubes are made with pure resins and UV inhibitors to protect young vines for up to 5 years. Also guards against animal browsing and chemical sprays. Each tube is 3.5” across. Easy two-part assembly. Can also be used on very young trees.

Options:
15" Grape Vine Grow Tube is designed for cordon/fruiting wires 24-30” tall
24" Grape Vine Grow Tube is designed for cordon/fruiting wires 30-36” tall
30" Grape Vine Grow Tube is designed for cordon/fruiting wires 36-72” tall

I see commercial grape growers use something similar. Haven't had any success growing grapes yet. I am hoping this will help.

When is it best to remove the blue tubes from young grape vines?
DR MARY T on Jun 26, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Grow tubes should be removed towards the end of the first season so that the vines can harden off in anticipation of cold weather. The tubes can be re-used for subsequent plantings.
Do you suggest starting with an arbor right away?
Alicia R on Jun 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: It's really not necessary, as the tube is its own kind of support for a short while. It is easier, however, to build the arbor first, before planting, vs. trying to build an arbor around the plants.
There are 3 size options. How do you choose the correct size?
D R on Dec 25, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I measured from the ground up and I needed 24" for each vine .
Ok to use when planting grape vines in fall and leave in place through the winter?
Norman on Sep 5, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I placed the ???blue plastic??? around the bottoms of the plants and secured it with clothes pins. Then I used lots of mulch to try to protect the roots from freezing temps. All my plants survived except the Muscadines. I would not call these ???tubes.??? What I received was more like sheets of heavy blue plastic. I hope this helps. I am very pleased with Starks??? customer service. The vines that survived our winter are thriving and beautiful.
Can I use this for Kiwi Berries?

So glad I bought these!
These grow tubes are great! They serve to protect my small vines from critters while allowing them adequate sun. So far they have been a great investment as one of my young vines was beginning to become a critter food source until I installed the grow tube. Since covering the vine, it has sprouted lots of new growth and the critters are leaving it alone. I have begun to cover all of my small vines with these tubes. Definitely purchasing more.
