Shrub Jacket - Small 4.4 5 26 26
shrub jacket These were easy to install, and held up in the heavy wind we had shortly after I covered the shrubs. The end of winter ail tell the story. The jackets fit into the landscape nicely, too. November 29, 2013
Not for me . . . Bought this to keep outdoor gardenia safe during winter. Had to adjust shape of plant to fit circular design of cover. Tying ribbons and using safety pins(provided) to secure side opening was a pain and left gaps in coverage. Draw string top still allows opening to weather. Unusual cold spell and 30+ wind gusts tested the cover which only tipped slightly. However I would purchase a pop up, more rigid, less collapsible shrub cover. Too many parts to keep up with, not what I anticipated. I still have to check it daily to see that it's secure. November 29, 2013
This product has great features. These are the first covers I have found to protect my large 3x3 asparagus fern hanging baskets. Easy installation, large safety like pins to close any gaps, , sturdy fabric, attractive color and the plants emerge unscathed from the freeze. Thanks for this great product! November 23, 2013
So far it's good It finally got cold enough for me to try the shrub jacket. It wasn't a hard freeze, so I don't yet know how it will perform when the temperature is at or below freezing with a wind chill. For a night when it's around freezing for a few hours, it worked fine. Easy to set up and remove, no damage to the hibiscus I was trying to protect. February 4, 2013
Look just as good on as off The few times our temperatures dip into the 30's we need something that is "easy on" and "easy off" and these wonderful shrub jackets are just that. They look very good, too, as they cover the plants in cement pots on either side of my front door. I love them! January 11, 2013
They Work! Not sure how well they would do in colder climates but here in Coastal Carolina the Shrub Jackets seem to be doing the job. They're easy to put on. Could be a one-person job but much easier with two. I do need to check the ties regularly. Strong winds will dislodge the fit. January 3, 2013
Shrub Jacket This cover is being used to cover a limestone memorial/monument the Garden Club of Richfield springs erected to preserve from the salt & snow during our Upstate NY winters. We have not installed the cover as there has not been an appreciable amount of snow to date. I purchased several sizes and returned one cover with excellent service. December 11, 2012
Great product Only used the shrub jackets once for a couple nights so far, but will be needing them again soon. They are good quality material and easy to put on the bushes. My only complaint is that the nylon cords at the top and bottom should have something on the end (a wooden/plastic/cork ball) so that the cord doesn't get pulled in. This happened to me and I had to cut the casing stitching to get to the cord and feed it back through. Other than that I think they are great! November 16, 2012
Shrub Jacket Large I ordered this product to cover a large hydrangea plant. I thought that it would cover the plant, but, unfortunately, the plant is larger than this cover. I haven't used it for any other plants yet. I misjudged the size of the plant, so this is my fault and not the product. I plan on using it elsewhere. That is why I gave it the rating that I did. Plus, it is a little difficult to use. November 14, 2012
Great Find These shrub jackets were a great find. My wife and I always search through the catalog and say that we might want something. This time we acted. I was very impressed by the jackets when installing them. It took veryu little time and they are working well so far. Time and snowfall will tell the full picture. We liked them so much that we ordered four more for other shrubs. They will be the ideal solution. November 13, 2012
Exactly as described This was the first time buying a product to protect plants from the elements. This is very good quality and appears to be breathable while keeping away frost and snow. It has a handy tote for storage during the summer months. I will purchase more if and when the need arises. November 7, 2012
Shrub Jacket Roll I can cover six Alberta spruce reasonably and have them look good too!! I found some clips actually designed for closet use that seem heavy enough to last the winter so I'm a happy camper!! November 2, 2012
Not for me... I returned this product due to it not being what I expected. I was looking for a tent-like product; slip on, stake to ground, adjust size and you are done. The quality of the product is great and is described properly on the site. It could work for many, but just not for me. November 1, 2012
KEEP YOUR PLANTS COZY IN THE WINTER THIS IS A GOOD PRODUCT. HOWEVER, COULD BE IMPROVED WITH VERY LITTLE CHANGE. 1) THE TIES ARE VERY SHORT & DIFFICULT TO TIE IN A BOW. (NO KNOTS) 2) THE STRINGS NEED THE SLIDE STOPPERS TO KEEP THE STRINGS FROM PULLING THROUGH. THANK YOU. December 10, 2011
2 weeks after installation So far, so good with this product. I have just recently installed it on two aspraragus ferns to try and protect them from the winter's cold on a sheltered porch in Cleveland, OH. Not sure if they will do enough to keep them alive, but I thought it was worth a shot as they had grown really large this year. I usually buy new every year - if this works, I may not have to. December 2, 2011
Easy to use even if you're over 70. The shrub jackets were easy to use even though my husband and I are in our 70s. They went on/over the plants without any problems. I especially like the huge safety pins that were included to insure that there are no gaps in the coverage. I also appreciate that there are pouches to store them after the bad weather has passed. Thank you for making this chore so much easier. November 29, 2011
Great products They are great easy to use easy to put on the schrubs November 13, 2011
Simplifies the winterizing task We've been looking for a fast and efficient way of doing the once a year task of protecting our 12 azaleas and burning bushes from the deer and rabbits. These shrub jackets are a perfect solution. November 10, 2011
BUSH COVERS I ORDERED THE LARGES THINKING THEY WOULD BE LARGE ENOUGH TO COVER MY GARDENIAS BUT THEY ARE NOT BIG ENOUGH TO COVER THEM! THEY ARE NOT BIG ENOUGH AT ALL, I USE A DOUBLE TOP SHEET TO COVER THEM NOW AND THESE COVERS ARE NOT EVEN AS BIG AS A TWIN SHEET! I AM DISAPPOINTED! October 25, 2011
This product looks better in the catalog. We were disappointed when we went to put the jackets on the shrubs. They are extremely light weight and will most likely blow away with the first wind storm. Also, several of them were torn due to poor stitching and we had to use extra pins to hold them together. October 25, 2011
Shrub Jackets Mean Goodbye burlap We are always troubled by rabbits eating our shrubs over the winter. In the past we have used burlap to cover the bushes and that has worked well, but the burlap has to be cut to measure and tied up with twine, making the whole process long and difficult. Then the burlap only lasts one season. I was delighted to find these shrub jackets. The are SO EASY to put on the shrubs and close up tightly and securely. They seem like they will weather the sseason well, but it's too early to tell for sure. I have been telling everyone I know about these wonderful "improvements." October 24, 2011
Safe for the winter ! We lost 3 shrubs last winter due to the heavy snow and blowing North winds here in Albany, NY. These shrub covers appear to be just what we needed and wanted but could not locate last year....heavier and more durable protection than burlap, and breathable to get the shrubs some air. PLUS, they look nice in the yard !!!.......... October 18, 2011

Both seem to do the same job, but while the jacket is also breathable, it is not a mesh and I would think might be more effective at blocking winds and retaining heat from sunlight. But, as there is no indication on the website as to what temperatures they could both withstand and still protect the plants inside, I have no way of knowing for sure. Perhaps the mesh would allow extra sunlight and heat to reach the plants.

Thank you for your question.

The Shrub Jacket provides protection from the drying effects of winter wind and sun, plus it also protects against damage due to road salt and animals such as deer and rabbits. The Shrub Jacket does not provide any long-term protection from cold temperatures; in winter climates use only on cold-hardy shrubs. In warmer climates, the Shrub Jacket does provide temporary protection from over-night frosts or sudden drops in temperature.

The Winter Shrub Cover does help protect plants from frost and freezing temperatures. It is designed to shield plants from harsh winter elements: wet, heavy snow, ice, freezing rain, wind, road salt, etc.
