Shrub Jacket - Small is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 39.
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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost Perfect I ordered small shrub jackets for spring freeze/thaw protection for my micro-mini rose bushes. The jackets were so large, that I had to cut one into 3 to have it work for my tiny plants. The quality of the jackets are very good, but instead of the wimpy, useless ties on the sides, I would have the ability to order extra pins instead. (the Jackets come with 3 pins)The giant pins supplied with the shrub jackets are very nice (don't know how they would look after an entire winter outside) and I used 3 on each plant and cut down jacket. I have two extra jackets left over now and will use those next winter if I can get more pins. Bottom Line: Customers need to be able to order packages of extra pins for these to work on different types and sizes of shrubs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great protector for shrubs I bought one of these years ago at a garden center. It has done a great job of over wintering one of my bushes. i couldn't find them any more at the garden center, so I looked on line. I really like this product. They are very easy to use and last for years. It keeps bushes and shrubs safe from wind burn and extreme temperatures and yet lets air and moisture in to keep the plant healthy. I am happy that I found them at Improvements at a reasonable price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shrub Jacket Ordering was very easy, delivery was very good, and the jacket looks good, it would have been very good it the top would completely close . Will know more after the first winter, Hope it protects my Myers Lemon tree.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Disappointing I was expecting bags that would have drawstrings at the bottom. Instead this is a piece of fabric with safety pins for the sides and strings that can be tied at the bottom. It will take 2 people to get these on and the medium is really undersized. Very disappointing.

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.
