How does it work?

These images show how BioStretch
rots away into the ground over a 6 month period after falling off the plant.

  • BioStretch doing it's job, gently supporting the plant.

  • After approx. 18 months BioStretch loses its strength and drops off the plant.

  • On contact with the moist soil and bacteria, the cotton quickly starts to break down.

  • Approx. 3 months in and BioStretch has already rotted away quite considerably.

  • After approx. 6 months on the ground BioStretch has rotted away into the soil and completely disappeared.

"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!"
