This tape works great in hot or cold weather and is recommended for use on deciduous fruit and nut trees, roses, grapevines, citrus fruit trees, coniferous evergreens, ornamental trees, deciduous shade trees and even bonsai trees. Each roll contains 571 perforated 25 mm tape strips which can produce more than 1142 tyings with an excellent success rate. Each of these measures 1" x 2 3/4" in its unstretched form.
Tape is should be left on plant material until nearly or completely degraded. Do not remove tape by hand. User may get several tyings from one strip. May do up to 1142 tyings of smaller budded or grafted material. Best use of this tape is to wrap twice above the bud or graft, once over top of bud or graft, and twice again below bud or graft. Bud will emerge through tape without human interference.
