advice on tree guard size for dwarf stock fruit trees

I've just ordered some dwarf stock fruit trees and will need to protect them from deer and rabbits. They are supplied at 1.5m tall multi-branched bare root. I'm thinking of ordering plastic mesh treeguard tubes. The tubes come in lengths of 60cm up to 1.8m (80-110mm dia.). Any idea which length would be best?

Thanks nutcutlet, The position of the fence means it's fairly accessible to trim so I'll have a look for not-too-vigorous varieties. A mix of honeysuckle and jasmine may be very nice..

Hi nutcutlet, The fence is about 1.5m so I'm thinking about that height in order to give privacy from people walking down the lane.

Hi All, I've just put a fence up (will try to attach pic) and have ordered 3 Wild Edric hedging roses to plant along. I'm hoping to intersperse these with other hedging type plants but am wary of swamping them. In order to get some privacy am considering planting some evergreen clematis to climb over the fence behind the roses. Two questions really: 1. could anyone suggest a clematis that would be the right size and temperament (central Brittany so it's pretty rainy with temp much like Cornwall, on a S-E facing slope) and, 2. any thoughts on evergreen hedging/bushes that would grow alongside the roses would be appreciated. We have some very overgrown holly (not sure how easy it would be to transplant) and plenty of overgrown lonicera.. Thanks, Pip
