      Comments about Essex Plant Supports:

      Since the unit comes in several pieces it does not fit together very well. My unit would not stay together long enough for me to easily install it. Once installed it you try to pick it up to reposition it, it falls apart and you have to start assembling it all over again. Poor design. One of the tabs on one of the rings was welded on crocked so it would not fit all the way into the mating part.

            Comments about Essex Plant Supports:

            Be sure and set up the support before the plant is very tall. Mine grew while I waited on my order for the Essex support and it was a struggle to get the plant in. Worth it though because the plant looks lovely now but is not blooming yet. Last year it had about 200 yellow blooms but I do not know what it is because I rescued it from the hay meadow.

                Comments about Essex Plant Supports:

                I used six of these, four medium and two large, in my flower garden. I have an urban garden with too many plants and it is important to keep it tidy looking. These are the most attractive and durable plant supports that I have ever seen. I have been eyeing them online for a while, and finally they went on sale last fall. When they go on sale again, I will order again. The only reason I did not give five stars: the large is not as large as I would have liked to hold all of my sneezeweed and solidago fireworks. Best part: strong and attractive!

                        These are the best stakes I've used. They work wonderfully for my peonies! They are simple to use, but it helps to have another person helping or a third hand!

                        How-To

                        • How to plant and grow peonies.
                        • Plant a garden with bouquets in mind. By choosing carefully, you can have a steady supply of blooms -- from the first daffodils of April to the last mums of November.
                        • The key tools are support grids, rings, metal linking stakes, bamboo stakes and poles. If you have a few of each kind on hand, you'll be ready for the season's challenges.
