I have planted natives in clay soil and used plastic sleeves - how long before I remove it?

Also staked and mulched around the sleeve

Hi Sue,

Thank you for contacting Yates. 

It is difficult to give out an exact time frame as every native is different.  A rule of thumb is to protect it till the plant has established with active growth. 

Try 'Yates Dynamic Lifter Liquid Concentrate' as a gentle fertiliser and soil improver. It's certified for use in organic gardens, and contains seaweed, blood&bone and fish meal to help developing new roots and restoring healthy growth. Click here for more info on this product:

Hope this helps and happy gardening :)
