The one-quart Mini RootGuard Gopher Guard basket (6 pack) is easy to use and specially designed to protect the roots of small plants. The Mini’s 1/2-inch hex mesh is vinyl-coated for durability, yet it’s simple to form into shape and easy on your hands. They are packaged flat for easy storage, generously sized to allow for root growth, green color to blend into the landscape, can be removed at the end of the season for reuse the next year, and free standing once formed for easy planting, and to permit up sizing to allow for even more root growth.
Use this basket for small plants, such as annuals, border plants and herbs in four-inch pots: Basil, cilantro, thyme, Impatiens, Iris, Lilies, Tulips and Daffodils. For these smaller plants’ delicate roots, the Mini-Basket provides ideal protection from gophers.
Just set the basket in the plant hole with the green wire above-ground to block the overland route. Put the plant inside, backfill with soil and you're done! Protects from gophers for 6-10 years!
