Staking Plants

Staked plants at Vashon Island Garden Tour

At our March meeting we talked about creative and green ways to stake and label plants, including using recycled items.

Diane Mettler talks about some of the things you can use and considering — like creating your own tomato cages from left over wire fencing and using sticks that you’ve recently pruned. Other members chimed in with other creative ideas — like cutting your tomato cage in two and giving yourself a small and large cage.

Labeling we decided could be stylish and still recycled — from old silverware to  hand crafted stick markers.

It will be fun to see if we’re staking better this year.
