Cabbage Collars - 30 Discs
Vitax Cabbage Collars - Pack of 30
Protects cabbages and brassicas against Cabbage Root Fly and at the same time, helps keep soil warm, moist and weed free.
These cabbage collars are a simple and effective non-chemical way to protect your spring, summer and winter greens.
The Cabbage Root Fly can be a serious pest for brassicas such as cabbages, cauliflowers, brussels sprouts and broccoli, weakening the plants and causing cauliflowers to produce small heads.
The adult fly lays her eggs by the base of newly planted out brassicas. When the eggs hatch, the maggots burrow into the stem and root to eat them, killing or severely weakening the plant.
Vitax cabbage collars protect your plants by preventing the adult fly from placing the eggs in a sheltered position by the base of the plant.

How to Use Vitax Cabbage Collars
After planting and firming the plant in the ground, slide the Cabbage Collar around the stem, so that a snug fit is achieved.
As the plant grows and the stem thickens, the collar opens up to avoid any restriction to growth.
The cabbage collar also keeps the soil around the plant warm and moist, encouraging rapid plant establishment.
