Elegant Plant Supports Keep Your Flowers Standing Tall

  • Attractive plant supports hold flowers in a graceful shape and prevent flopping
  • Made from long-lasting, heavy-duty, powder-coated steel
  • Small Supports are sold in sets of 2
  • Large Supports are sold individually

We’ve designed these plant supports to be the sturdiest and most attractive on the market. The graceful arc supports flowers in a beautiful, natural bouquet shape, while the 8mm and 6mm steel uprights — the same used in public gardens and fine estates — are coated for durability. Our improved interlocking design snaps together easily and stays together, yet comes apart at the end of the season for compact storage.

  • Durable powder-coated steel
  • Small Supports are 23" H x 18-3/4" in diameter overall
  • Large Support is 38" H x 32-3/4" in diameter overall; includes a grow-through grid
  • Fold for compact storage
  • Gardener's Supply Exclusive

Falls apart

    Comments about Essex Plant Supports:

    I purchased the small size that folds down for storage. The pieces do not stay together. If you bump into this AT ALL it will fall apart. You are better off purchasing something that is welded into one piece for stability.

    While I like the style and sturdiness of the materials , it is difficult to assemble and place. If the legs were attached through an open ring instead of the straight hook, it would be so much easier to use

          Just what we needed to support some too-tall plants that don't want to stand up on their own! I would definitely recommend these.

            Comments about Essex Plant Supports:

            I love the way these look in my garden. The metal itself is sturdy and long lasting. The assembly mechanism is very flawed, however. Both circle tops have three small hooks that fit into small tubes on the legs. They do not fit tightly and it is nearly impossible to maintain the assembly when placing in the garden. I finally tried wiring it together with fine gauge wire. An imperfect, but workable solution. These need to be re-engineered and then they would be perfect.

              Comments about Essex Plant Supports:

              This superior plant support graced my favorite peony until the day a grey pine tree dropped a two foot diameter limb directly on it. Nothing could have withstood that kind of impact and the plant support is now a twisted example of abstract art. I immediately ordered a new one to replace it, as I've never found any better product.

                I searched a long time before finding these extra tall peony stakes. No others were tall enough.

                  Comments about Essex Plant Supports:

                  I purchased 1 to use on some peonies I have on the side of my yard. I was tired of having the flowers hang down on the ground and get run over by the mower and generally looking messy. Since they are rather expensive, I wanted to be sure I liked it before buying more. After using my first one, I was so pleased that I purchased 5 more to support the whole row of peonies. My row of peony bushes and supports became the "talk of the town". Many people wanted to know where I had gotten them. I have now made my third purchase to use on a second row of peonies. These are awesome!

                    These plant supports are attractive enough to leave up year-round. My only complaint is that it was a bit difficult to put together and keep it together until I got it in the ground. The stakes kept popping out of the holes.
