Supporting plants indoors and out. :) ATTENTION URBAN GARDENERS Having over ten years landscaping experience I know first hand how fast plants can grow once they get started in the garden. You're overjoyed to see a little sprout; you turn your back on it for a minute and it's six feet tall. Kind of like a teenager. Why not just let plants sprawl where they will? For many reasons: to conserve space and fit more into the garden by growing plants up instead of out; to keep fruit and vegetables and foliage off the ground; to encourage a heavier crop; to help fruit ripen by lifting it into the sunlight; to make the crops easier to find and pick etc...
Here are some basic rules for plant supports: Rule 1: Sturdier is better. Always. It's hard to imagine when you're sowing a seed or planting a little seedling how heavy that fully-laden tomato plant or cucumber vine (or gloriously blooming climbing rose) can grow to be. So when in doubt, over-engineer. Rule 2: Install your support when you plant. That way, you won't run the risk of not getting around to it while the plant becomes an overbearing monster. Rule 3: Match the support to the plant. Plants grow differently. Some want to climb, and will cling and pull themselves up; others will need to be tied. Rule 4: Be gentle. When a plant is tied to a support, the tie can rub or cut the stem as it moves with wind and rain or grows. So use soft materials, such as gentle jute twine, fabric tapes or strips of old pantyhose Rule 5: Stop making the mistake of using string and other make shift support systems that keep your harvest from reaching its maxium potential and buy Quick Stake Plant Support System.
