Pipe Cleaners for Garden Ties

By quietyard
February 26, 2012

Pipe cleaners make wonderful soft flexible ties for attaching plants to stakes and cut easily to size with just regular scissors. They come in a variety of colors so you could match them to the plant if you wanted. I purchased mine at a dollar store so it is very cost effective.

Great tip and something I never thought of. I bet you could use them to gently shape and redirect small branches as well. This is one I will use for sure, now gotta find a dollar store.

Oh my, I haven't seen or even thought of pipe cleaners in so long! What a good idea! I'll have to keep an eye out for them now.
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.
