Comments about Lashing Cord:

It seems almost silly to write a recommendation for this kind of product ... but this stuff is really wonderful. I discovered it more than a decade ago, and have been using it ever since. Mainly, I use it in my hobby greenhouse, for two different purposes: lashing together (Japanese-style) large-diameter bamboo to make an internal scaffolding for vines within the greenhouse and to hold automated misting tubes and nozzles; and for mounting orchids, bromeliads, gesneriads, and begonias on cork-bark "trees" I create. In the former application, using multiple thicknesses of the cord in the right way looks like proper Japanese lashing ... but this cord never rots or mildews, and stays strong for YEARS. In the latter use, using just one or two thicknesses makes the cord almost invisible, yet its strength and durability makes it perfect for holding plants in place. For ordinary "staking" you would need to be careful, as the thin cord could set soft stems.

          This lashing cord works well on my peony stakes and bamboo supports. It disappears into the foliage and can be reused another season if you choose.

            This product is so perfect to tie anything up in my gardens. No rot, holds tight, and so easy to work with. When you tighten it because it's waxed it stays tight until you tie the knot. I needed another spool and was worried I couldn't remember where I purchased it. This time I stuck the name number and email from Gardeners.com inside the spool. Everyone should keep this twine on hand. I love this product.

                I love this cording, I have used it to help hold back our black bamboo and I made a bamboo trellis. This cording is strong and doesn't slip around. My only regret was not ordering two instead of just one.

                  I want it for tying together tomato supports. I thought it would be cheaper than buying large quantities of tie wraps.
