Mix and match with this twirly twine combo. Nutscene garden twine has been a tool shed essential with me ever since I start gardening. But the simple satisfaction of tying in a garden plant is turned into a fun pastime with this colourful triple-pack. The colours remind me of the strings we used to put up for Christmas cards when I was a child. And they look equally festival-like outdoors, where they’ll become fashionably muted in the sun.

The soft yet strong, 2-ply jute twine is ideal for tying in climbers, as well as training wall shrubs. The handy, pocket-sized mini spools are 70mm (3in.) in height and are wound with 20m of twine. Each pack contains one green, one cream and one striped spool of twine. The twine can be pulled from the centre to avoid tangling in use.
