BioStretch is a soft material so it is very gentle and suited to use on even the most delicate of plants.
BioStretch is a very strong material that will support large plants as well as smaller ones.
BioStretch is an elasticated material so as your plant grows it will stretch whilst still giving gentle but firm support.
If used outdoors, depending on the weather conditions BioStretch naturally drops off the plant and rots into the ground after 18-24 months.
BioStretch is a cotton-based product, your hands however young or old will love it.
Uses for BioStretch Garden Ties
BioStretch can be used for all sorts of jobs around the garden – in fact, for anything that needs gentle but firm support. Common uses would include supporting tomato plants, securing runner bean canes and attaching to young staked plants and trees.
How does it work?

rots away into the ground over a 6 month period after falling off the plant.

BioStretch is Winner of Glee AwardsPublished: 24/09/2013
After trialling our BioStretch Garden Ties in garden centres over the past growing season, the feedback gave us the confidence to launch our Biodegradable Ties at Glee Birmingham 2013.
We are delighted to announce that we won the Green Award in the Glee New Product Category. We were selected from more than 200 entries this year. The selection was made by an expert panel of judges representing independent and multiple retailers, the media, trade associations and international suppliers – people who know their stuff within the industry!! Each entry was judged on a challenging range of criteria including innovation, design, quality, environmental credentials, pricing and retail potential. We were up against some excellent products and designs which made winning this award all the more important to us here at BioStretch.
Judges’ comments: Caroline Owen said: "Biostretch is an innovative, biodegradable twine that the judges felt is a truly eco-friendly product. It offers a soft, stretchy yet strong garden tie that rots into the ground after two years outside. It’s the ideal way of supporting a plant as it grows, and should have mass market appeal.
We were also Finalists in the GIMA Awards 2013 within the Growing and Planting Equipment and Sundries category. As the Certificate says – ‘Celebrating the best in the Garden Industry’.
Growers, Retailers, Wholesalers and Distributors visited out stand throughout Glee show from all over the world. We’ve had supply enquiries from 17 countries. We’re all brushing up on our language skills! It was lovely to stop and chat with keen gardeners too who understood the importance of our BioStretch strength and biodegradability.
We will be looking at commercial size rolls for Commercial Growers in the near future and alternative colours for the floristry world where so much ‘construction’ is used these days in floral art and design. BioStretch is easy to work with, no slipping or sliding, particularly when your fingers are cold!
Our little BioStretch character proved really popular at Glee 2013. Many retailers that we spoke to suggested that we place him/her (?) as an extra product rather than just a Point Of Sale aid. We designed this little tomato head character to be hung near a box of BioStretch Garden Ties so that people could pull the legs and arms and see for themselves just how soft, strong and stretchy the tie is without having to unravel a roll.
As you can see, our BioStretch character gets about a bit!
