    Comments about Soft Twist Ties:

    I use this product from my beans to my roses and more. So easy to use. And if I am inclined to, at the end of the season, I could save them and re-use again for next year. Thank you.

    Comments about Soft Twist Ties:

    I have used these in the past and they have lasted for years. So, I recently ordered more. The picture of the tie on the tree is thicker like the ones I ordered years ago. When they arrived I was stunned to see that it is thinner so I hope it will be as gentle as the old product. You need to update your photo! Another surprise, it was made in [*]. I think you need to let your customers know this before ordering! I want to buy stuff made in the USA.

      Easy to use, easy to reuse. Have used for over two years, and wouldn't be without for multiple outside tasks. Recently secured evergreen bows and bows, ornaments with same twists I used to tie vegetable and flower plants in summer.

      Comments about Soft Twist Ties:

      Initially, I thought this product was terrific... It was soft & flexible, stronger than regular twist-ties, and had good grip, and was less bulky than the foam covered wire ties... However, one season in the garden prooved me very wrong. The ties had become hard and brittle, with the deteriorated rubber cracking as I untwisted them. So, these have been relegated to the basement, where I use them for tying up cords and hoses, etc. The Frori Fix foam covered ties are excellent for outdoor use...

        I like this product, it works well and the color blends in very nicely and it holds well. I had to purchase two more because it didn't last very long at all. I think there should maybe be more footage added but for the price I guess its fair.

          Have mostly used the soft tie on my tomato plants to hold the main vines to the tomato ladders. It works great! Used on cukes and squash too. Can see that it has many uses.

          Comments about Soft Twist Ties:

          I use these ties on my vegetable plants, primarily on my tomatoes, and I love that I can cut the tie to the length I need. They don't harm the plant and they stay put. After having used a bunch of them last year I tossed them in a ziploc bag and have been re-using them this year (in addition to the other two rolls of ties I purchased!) so they really do last.

          Comments about Soft Twist Ties:

          These ties are great. The soft outer cover makes them very kind to the vegetable stems. The only downside is that you really should cut them with wire cutters which I don't always have in my garden "purse". I cheat and cut them with my scissors which is not good for the scissors.

            For years our ornamental grasses would flop over..these are easy to wrap around them and they stay upright without looking like they are squeezed together with a belt... And they are look nice!. Thanks!
