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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 !!!..........

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.

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.

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.

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.
