Brassica Collars offer a simple solution to stop the cabbage root fly, a notorious allotment pest that can cause serious damage to your brassica crops including broccoli, cabbages, cauliflowers, calabrese and brussels sprouts.
Stop cabbage root flies laying eggs by placing collars over the base of your young plants at planting time. This barrier method often proves more effective than chemicals and is ideal for organic growers reluctant to use chemical products on their harvests.
At planting time in May firm your young plants in the ground and slide the collar around the base of the plant using the wavy cut in the collar.
These effective collars adjust with the thickening and growing of the stem, avoiding restriction to the growth of your brassicas. The collars have the additional benefits of keeping the soil beneath the plants warm for good root growth and suppressing weeds around the immediate area around your plants.
