If the little girls in your life have outgrown their small hair clips, use the clips to tether plants or vines.

I use those all the time. The Dollar Store sells them cheap, and they have some bigger ones that work great for roses, since the canes can get fairly thick. They are way easier than the velcro tape or string. I also find them less damaging than string should you get gusty winds Thumbs up

I agree Gin and Joanne. They work great ... quick and easy.

Great for attaching clematis to a shrub limb, if you're growing the clematis in the shrub.

I'm a bit late seeing this tip but I'm so glad it popped up as a random tip on the home page! I use different sizes of hair clips for plants too ... bought a pack of small ones at Wal-Mart a few weeks ago but I need to go to the $ store where I know I'll get more for my money!! I've also at times snitched a few larger ones from my hair supply stash when I'm too lazy to try to find something else to use for tying up larger stems/vines. Green Grin!

Binder clips work well in a pinch, too. Have some holding clematis, lily stems, and sunflowers that had unexpectedly weak stems.
If you don't ask, the answer is always 'no.'
