      It's Not Just For Tomatoes Anymore

        Comments about Foam Ties:

        Although it can be used for tomatoes, the foam ties are invaluable when training fruit trees to grow along a fence or wall, in a training process called "espalier." These soft foam ties guard against damage from limb movement, even when the tiny new sprouts are soft and fragile. Once the foam ties are in place they will eliminate shifting and possible damage to the branches. While the thin wire is sturdy enough to hold plants in place, it can easily be cut with hand clippers.

        Comments about Foam Ties:

        The product is strong. I think well suited to building light plant support structures such as lattices, trellises and frames where camouflage is desired. For me kinda difficult to manipulate when tying plants. After cut to length sharp wire ends extend from cuts.

          For helping plants stay in place without harming them, this foam covered wire is the best product on the market. I have used this for many years and think so highly of it I gift it gardeners for the holidays and birthdays. Afterwards, they tell me it was the very best gardening gift they ever received. I just wish I had invented it!

            These ties are very effective without bruising the plants. They are easy to use and to reuse, and they last for years if they're taken in at the end of the growing season.

            Great for tying up tomatoes, tall flowers and other top-heavy plants. I also use it to secure my hanging birdfeeders because they blow off their hooks in strong winds.

                  Comments about Foam Ties:

                  I have been using these for years. The first packages I bought are well over 10 years old and are just now showing signs of the foam crumbling and needing replacement. I've never had one break even after 10+ years of twisting and untwisting. I love it that each tie can be cut to the precise length needed. They are very strong and will hold a heavy tomato crop reliably, yet have never damaged any of my plants. I have used them primarily with my tomato and pepper plants, but this year I intend to also use them to attach a climbing rose to a trellis. Don't hesitate to give them a try!
