Plant protection specialist, Haxnicks is launching a versatile new growing tunnel for plants up to 1 metre in height. The Haxnicks Grower offers a practical solution for raising and protecting large numbers of taller plants, useful for large brassicas and small fruit bushes. It takes only minutes to erect and is easily placed and secured over a nursery bed. It will work hard all year round in the garden, as a temporary greenhouse in spring for pots and trays and as a useful over-wintering station for tender patio plants.
The Haxnicks Grower Frame is sold separately from its covers. The Grower Frame (RRP £36.99) is made from tubular black powder-coated steel which slots together to make a sturdy, rust-proof frame measuring 3 metres long by 1 metre wide by 1 metre high. Ground pegs are included to secure it to the ground. The covers fit snugly over the frame; they are available in two different materials to give the best protection and shelter throughout the year. With four side zips for easy access and watering, the Haxnicks Grower couldn’t be easier to use.
The Grower Poly Cover (RRP £26.99) is made from heavy-duty, clear polythene for robust weather and pest protection and an enhanced growing environment; the retained warmth and humidity is controlled using the insect-proof ventilation flaps at either end.
The Grower Pest Protection Cover (RRP £26.99) is made from Haxnicks’ award-winning Micromesh™ for the best possible protection from insects, including aphids and carrot fly, and other pests. The ultra-fine mesh allows air and water to easily pass through, but protects against scorching and other weather damage.
The Haxnicks Grower Frame and Grower Covers are available from all good garden centres from February 2009. For stockists or more information, call Haxnicks on 0845 241 1555 or see our Grower System pages online.
