Quote from: Irons on June 25, 2023, 01:02:06 AMA new toy that I am finding more then useful around both garden and allotment. Tying tomato plants to canes for example is tiresome, especially young plants. With this tool job completed in a second. How it works is beyond clever. Half close and the top arm grabs a length of fresh tape, fully close and tape is secured around both plant and support.If interested shop around! Big variation in purchase price.
Quote from: Pohjolas Daughter on June 25, 2023, 03:09:13 AMOh, cool. May I ask, does your model use staples of some sort? Or how does it stay tied? I saw some mixed reviews and as you said, the price is all over the place. How long/much have you been using yours for and any fiddly bits that you can make us aware of?PD
Quote from: Irons on February 08, 2024, 07:47:04 AMSweet peppers add such interest to a salad. They are slow growers and what with poor light levels and cool spring in the UK it is frustrating that plants are not really producing a decent crop until September. I decided in an attempt to get around this by investing in grow lights. Instead of weak leggy seedlings in February, I have twenty-odd sweet peppers and three aubergine plants bursting with vigour. So much so, I'm beginning to worry that plants will get too big to handle before summer finally arrives.
Quote from: Szykneij on February 08, 2024, 08:09:04 AMThat looks like an awesome tool! Thanks for posting it. I'll definitely look into buying one, and my knees will be grateful for it.Still way too cold around here for any gardening or seed starting activities, but my pile of mail-order seed and flower catalogs is steadily growing on my desk.I did just order some bareroot plants that I was enticed to buy from a company email. In the spring, I'll be receiving some Snowberry (Symphoricarpos albus), Meadowsweet (Spiraea alba), Sweet Fern, and Poke Milkweed. These are all native plants to my area and favorites of mine, except for the Poke Milkweed. It's a type of milkweed I don't have and looked like an interesting addition.
