Vetiver Bare Roots freshly planted.
Vetiver Grass starting to work on preventing soil erosion.
Amazing growth after just one year.
On arrival your package will be covered in a biodegradable bag. Inside this bag you will find damp newspaper covering the roots of your slips to protect and moisten them during delivery.. Each bag will contain 10 slips.
We recommend 3 to 4 slips per linear metre, areas with steeper erosion will require more than one row and it may be worth planting the slips closer together. It is normal for your slips look a like this picture as they establish themselves.
Like any plants the bare root slips need to be watered regularly, meaning daily until they get established. this normally takes around 3 months depending on your soil, altitude, weather etc.
