Use BLUE-X® Grapevine Shelters to:
  • Increase plant growth up to 150%.
  • Eliminate training the vine to the wire.
  • Bring in the first crop up to a year early.
  • Increase the yield of that first crop.
  • Protect the young vines from the drying and mechanical damage caused by the wind.
  • Protect young vines from rodents, rabbits and other herbivores.
  • Protect vines from chemical sprays.
Easy to Use, Remove and Reuse

BLUE-X® Grapevine Shelters are constructed using a patented two piece method. The growtubes are packaged flat and the two pieces can be assembled very quickly.

To assemble a single sheet of blue plastic film (Part A) is rolled up and inserted into a blue-tinted poly sleeve (PART-B) open at both ends. When the Grapevine Shelter is no longer needed on the vine, it can be removed by slitting the poly sleeve (PART-B). Once removed, the poly sleeve (Part-B) can be recycled. The polyester film (Part-A) can then be stored for reuse the next season. Replacement poly sleeves can be purchased separately if needed.

How do I protect my plants with the Blue-X vine shelters?
Immediately after planting, the Blue-X vine shelters can be put over the plant. The vine shelters can be attached to a bamboo pole, stake, wire or trellis to maintain the upright position. This will protect the tender foliage from "critter" damage as well as allow an herbicide to be sprayed around the plants to minimize competition from other vegetation. 

When can I remove the Blue-X vine shelters?
Best time to remove it is in the fall once the plant went into dormant, by then the foliage will not be appetizing any more for the deer or any other animal and no need for weed kill will be nesesary It is not recommended to leave them during the winter since it might create a greenhouse effect.
