I cannot imagine gardening without satay sticks or bamboo skewers. They are one of the most useful gardening tools.

The sticks or skewers are 10" long and are usually used for cooking food like kebabs and satays. They are made of bamboo and are sharp at one end for the skewering.

I use them for staking plants.

Straightening plants.

And training plants.

I also use them like the quills of a porcupine, with pointy ends outwards, to discourage dogs, cats, and birds from flattening seedlings.
