Bungee Cord Usage in the Garden

Bungee cords are very handy in the garden! They come in different lengths and they are large enough so that they don't hurt the plants or shrubs when used to tie plants together or to stakes.

I use these all the time to pull back my tall plants like Joe Pye and anchor them to the fence so they don't blow so much in the wind. They come in all sizes and they work great.

I agree they are useful.I use two bungee cords to keep my cheap greenhouse (whose zipper is broken) closed.

Their also great for tying shrubs together in the fall that tend to break with heavy snowfalls during the winter. Thumbs up

Wow! I thought I was the only one who did this. I got the mini bungee cords from the automotive department at Walmart. LOL.
