Biostretch - Soft Stretchy Plant Tie 20m
Biostretch is a soft, stretchy, plant tie which stretches as the plant grows making it perfect for soft and delicate plants
Unfortunately this item is currently out of stock.
This award winning plant tie is 20m long (unstretched), easy to use, suprisingly strong and has some great features:-
Soft - Biostretch is a soft material so it is very gentle and suited to use on even the most delicate of plants.
Strong - Biostretch is a very strong material that will support large plants as well as smaller ones.
Stretchy - Biostretch is an elasticated material so as your plant grows it will stretch whilst still giving gentle but firm support.
Biostretch naturally drops off the plant and rots in the ground after approximately 18-24 months outdoors depending on weather conditions. So its great for your plants and great for the environment too.
Uses for Biostretch Garden Ties - Biostretch can be used for all sorts of jobs around the garden – in fact, for anything that needs gentle but firm support. Common uses would include supporting tomato plants, securing runner bean canes and attaching to young staked plants and trees.
I love this for fruit tree training and other pruning/training jobs. So pleased to find it here!
This is the best tie I've ever used in forty years of gardening. It even takes the weight of heavy tomato plants without damage. I bought another 4 rolls recently as I now use it for absolutely everything

We found the stretch fabric tie simple to use and easy to handle. The BioStretch garden tie came as a ball, which you could cut to suit. These types of tie were soft, so they didn't dig into the soft stems of young plants and expanded with them as they grew. If the knot doesn't become too tight during the season they can also be reused.

The Soft Touch - Biostretch from Harrod Horticultural is just the product if you like using old tights as a tie. This is far more aesthetic option but offers a familiar result. The 20m ball of 100% biodegradable eslasticated material offers considerable stretch and strength. According to the creator, it takes about 18 months to degrade in the soil. It's a very effective tie, and I can't help thinking that it would be just as handy in the sewing box as it is in the garden.
