Goodness gracious, great balls of twine. Like many gardeners, I’ve used Nutscene garden twine for years, but the different colours now available bring a smile to my face each time I go to tie a plant into its support. Cinnamon is a favourite colour as it stylishly combines with the green stems of plants and blends well with garden walls and fences. It will fade gradually with age.

The soft yet strong, 3-ply jute twine is absolutely prefect for tying in climbers, as well as training wall shrubs. These hefty 130m balls of twine will satisfy the most fastidious plant trainer. The ball itself is 105mm (4in.) high and the twine can be pulled from the centre to avoid tangling in use.
