Lifting your foliage wires ensures all your shoots are neatly and securely tucked in, providing structure, support and improved canopy management. However, once you have tensioned your wires by hand, (on their chains) there can still be some slack and shoots often fall out in high winds. Biodegradable ‘C’ clips pinch the pairs of foliage wires together, helping to keep your precious shoots in situ.
Placed centrally between each vine, (though not adjacent to the trellis posts) foliage clips create sufficient tension whilst aiding vertical shoot positioning. Our foliage clips are made from wooden fibres pressed together with pine resin – there’s no addition of glue, synthetic binder or heavy metal. The clips are designed to last one season and are easily snipped off at pruning time.
