    Hard to set up, even with 2 people. Needs screws or something to secure the pieces that fit together. Not sure if it will stay together all season.

      Comments about Essex Plant Supports:

      This is the most substantial plant support I have encountered. Will hold up my extra large peony bushes, russian sage and gooseberry bushes. Please note that the online sizing for the large is wrong on the website (the printed catalog is correct). The large is 38"H by 22" diameter (not 18"). This makes quite a bit of difference as the large is much more useful than it appears.

        Comments about Essex Plant Supports:

        Out of the 6 I purchased, 3 went together easily. The other 3 pop apart and will have to be wired together. They look nice and are heavier wire than others that I have. My main concern is that the peonies will grow out under the main hoop since the other one is almost ground level. No grid in the center either to help separated.

        • Best Peony Support

        Comments about Essex Plant Supports:

        I have 6 Essex supports in various sizes. I use them for Butterfly bushes, Peonies, Bleeding heart, and Baptisia. I always use copper wire to wrap around the connection points between the circles and support legs otherwise they tend to come apart when placing them in the gardens. That being said, I only have to do that once since I leave them in the gardens year around. They are really nice supports and while expensive, they support my plants very well.

        I am known for my flower gardens and these are a great addition to make my beds attractive. Keeps plants neat and contained and prevents top heavy plants from falling over allowing plants to be shown off to there best advantage. I leave these up all year round as the birds use them to pearch in the winter allowing a great view of them. I will continue to purchase additional supports as it seems I never have enough

          Comments about Essex Plant Supports:

          I am so excited that the plant supports arrived. Can't wait to use them in the spring. Many years ago I purchased the tomato/cucumber trellis. I love them and they have held up for years and still look new. These plant supports are just like the trellis in design and will be great for my dinner plate hydrangeas.

          Comments about Essex Plant Supports:

          Purchased for peony supports, but also bought the large size to be used as a bird bath support. It works great! The large heated bird bath fits snuggly into the wire rim and the height is good. It was nearly impossible to find a replacement support for my heated bird bath once the original rusted out. The large plant support was an excellent replacement.

            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.
