Twine for Gardeners

Twine is a good thing to keep handy in the garden or on the potting bench. A terracotta pot turned upside down will hold the twine and a pair of scissors or knife.

Cinda, I just love this tip. I am fore ever misplacing my twine. Maybe if I put it in a pot I would be able to easily find it. Thumbs up

Oh, I do like this idea! And you could have fun painting the pot, too!
Confidence is that feeling you have right before you do something really stupid.

Great idea, I'm always losing things and keeping twine in a pot would sure help me. Good place for the scissors too. Hurray!

I can't believe I missed this one. *Great* idea, as I have dogs/ cats that see the ball and carry it away....
In the end, only kindness matters.

Science is not the answer, it is the question.

Gymgirl found a great source for really strong waxed twine.

http://garden.org/thread/view_post/173264/

It's 9-ply, and you can unravel it to get really strong waxed thread. The wax is very "grippy", and sometimes I'll tie a little onto something to make a super-firm grip.
