The Q&A Archives: Treated Wooden Stakes and Fruit Safety

Question: Hello, I am getting ready to palnt some grape vines and I was going to stake them to "treated" wooden planter stakes. I am concerned that the chemicles used to treat the stakes might leach into the fruit after watering. Is this a possiblity? I was told that even handling the stakes could be harmful. To a lesser extent, I am concerned about the possible rot issues with untreated stakes. Advice? TY.
