*** We recommend ***

Adding BLUE-X Plant Shelters to your Higgins muscadine vines.  BLUE-X Grapevine Shelters  create a beneficial microclimate for each grapevine. The increased humidity and carbon dioxide levels in the grow-tubes accelerate plant growth and enhance vine survival. This will increase vine growth up to 150% the first year and will increase fruit yields your first harvest season. As an added benefit they protect young vines from rodents, rabbits and other herbivores.

We offer the only shelter on the market today that takes advantage of beneficial blue light!
It’s a small cost but offers a big reward for your vineyard.
