Shrub Jacket - Small is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 44.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Peace of Mind I purchased these in anticipation of another unusual winter here in Central Florida. Better to have protection available for use, when needed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Going back to burlap! I have never had trouble with my plants making it through the winter with burlap. I was looking for something a bit easier to put on, which these provided. Unfortunately, these covers suffocated my plants. I just uncovered them today and they are nearly dead. Hoping they make a comeback, but it doesn't look good. I will be using burlap from now on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best product for Covering shrubs I have used them all, wooden tepees, pop up shrub protectors ...but the shrub protectors offer the best covering while looking attractive. Developed in the NE the company know winters and works well with customer to make sure you have what you need to adapt protector to your shrub.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product, but skimps on "safety pin" closures I bought 2 Large and 3 Medium sized Shrub Jackets. They have 4 tie tabs on the bottom and pulls strings on either side to help close the Jackets, which are open on both sides. The package also includes a small pack of 3 safety pin type closures to help close the open sides. Both the L and M sizes include only 3 pins. You actually need at least 6 pins for the L size and 4 to do a good job. Not sure why the manufacturer was so cheap in this regard. The lack of include pins makes me give this product a 4 instead of a 5. Had to use binder clips to finish the job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good solution for the price Bought a few of these in different sizes to protect shrubs that get smaller every winter due to deer. Look good with nice pattern and color. Material seems sturdy. Fairly easy to install once you do the first one to get the hang of it. Bought this larger one to replace one I bought last fall. We had couple of days of sustained 40-50 mph winds and the most exposed cover took off across the neighborhood somewhere; lost for good. Would suggest you use not just the ties, but one or two of the extra safety pin like clips included to be sure the covers are cinched up tight against wind gusts.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Poor Purchase I was initially excited about purchasing the shrub covers. It's such a chore using burlap each year and the shrub jacket looked great in the picture. Looks are deceiving because they are very awkward to put on and secure to the plant. I had to tie a rope from the center of my shrub to the jacket so if, rather when it blows off I won't loose the jacket. I'm going back to using burlap. On a positive note the quality of the cloth is very good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good coverage I live in south central Texas. We usually have pretty mild winters, but usually have a few winter days where the temperature goes down to freezing. Have used sheets in the past to cover sensitive plants but decided I needed a specific product to cover the plants. I think these shrub jackets will work perfectly. The fabric appears strong enough to protect the plants, and I like that I can close the bag at the bottom. I think they should work very well.

What are the dimensions of the S, M, and L shrub protectors? Also, in reading the comments, several people asked about buying extra pins. Has there been a change in their availability?

Which protects more? The Shrub Jacket or the Winter Shrub Cover?

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.
Asked by: Palau
I just bought the shrub covers this year but have used the shrub jackets for two years. The jackets don't hold up and are a pain to put on. I don't think either type retains heat. I think they work in the following way. If the plant is covered with snow, that acts as insulation. The cover should work better than the jacket because the snow is actually off more of the plant. If there is no snow, then the darker color of the cover should transmit more heat to the plant than the jacket would. Again, since the cover is not actually in full contact with the plant, it should offer better wind protection than the jacket. Rain can go more easily through the cover than the jacket. The cover is certainly easier to deal with but the price is really only justified if they hold up longer than the two years I got with the jackets.

You say it's breathable but can the sun go through the fabric?

I'd like to leave the jacket on for lengths of time and wanted to know if the plants would still get sun.
Asked by: 123Raleigh
Depending on how tightly you cinch the top, some sunlight will get in. I only use it in the winter and take it off once the temps begin to warm.
