Jute string in a Tin 100m

100m of biodegradable jute string in a tin with cutter.

Stronger than cheaper brands of jute, this string keeps a fair tension before snapping, despite being relatively thin. Used outside in the weather it will last 2-3 years. Ideal for tying bamboo onto espalier wire, or irrigation pipe onto stakes, or tomato supports, etc. Advantage is that it's biodegradable over nylon string or zip ties. Very easy to tie, the knots hold well because of the roughness of the twine.

Recommend looping 2-3 times around before tying to increase the tension and strength.

The tin makes for easy storage, dispensing and cutting of the twine and is reuseable. Better than a ball of twine that inevitably gets tangled or unrolled.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
