Pole beans, grapes, and apples (some of our produce favorites) can all be harnessed by employing SPEEDWRAP® or VELCRO® Brand ties for plants. Whether you need help supporting a side-heavy apple tree or just want to secure vertically growing plants, SPEEDWRAP® or VELCRO® Brand ties for plants can help.
How to Use SPEEDWRAP® or VELCRO® Brand Hook and Loop Ties :
Smaller SPEEDWRAP® & VELCRO® Brand Ties for Plants
When it comes to the use of hook and loop ties for smaller plants, we recommend employing SPEEDWRAP® Brand Economy Ties. These low-profile, reusable ties are gentle on vines, branches, and they are ideal for the earlier stages of plant growth. Although twine and hemp rope are sometimes used, they are often harder to secure with vertically growing plants, especially those smaller in size. Because of these ties’ strength, versatility, and soft-to-the-touch characteristics, hook and loop ties are perfect for most plants.
Cucumber vines can be tethered on trellises or tomato vines can be adhered to tall stakes, using smaller hook and loop ties for plants. Already cut-to-size, these hook and loop fasteners easily wrap around the width of plant-laden poles or trellises. What makes these hook and loop ties even better tools? Unlike twine, rope, or zip ties, they are reusable and come in a variety of colors. So, come next harvest, you can more easily identify certain plants and save and reuse these ties.
Larger Hook and Loop Ties
As plants get larger in size, it is important to replace smaller hook and loop ties with larger ones. The reason? Left unchanged, smaller holsters can restrain plant growth or lead to the deformation of the plant. The best solution for future resizing of the tie is to use something like SPEEDWRAP® Standard Economy Tape. This tape is cut-to-length, so you can create some extra slack on the tie and overlap it onto itself for younger plants. As the plant grows, you can open and refasten the piece of hook and loop.
Hook and loop tape is a horticulturist’s dream. Its cut-to-length capacity enables this hook and loop tape to be measured and cut according to the plant’s specific needs. So, whether you are growing cucumbers or tomatoes, this industrial-strength product will support the demands of each plant. And, just as with the smaller SPEEDWRAP® and VELCRO® Brand ties for plants, the tape can be reused year after year.
