Use Old Panty Hose to Tie Up Plants

Cut up old panty hose into small strips and use those to tie tomato plants to the stakes.

They won't harm the plants and you get to recycle.

When you're gardening and you have vegetables that vine, you can get some wooden stakes (or make a trellis) and take your old pantyhose that you can't use anymore and tie the vines off the ground. Pantyhose won't bruise your fruit and the fruit won't ground rot, because it's not on the ground. Hope this helps.

Take old panty hose, each leg cut into a band then snipped open make the best ties to tie up plants to stakes or trellis'. They are stretchy, easy to tie, strong and soft enough not to damage or cut into plant stems. And they're a way to get a little more value out of worn hose.

Tying Up Plants

Use strips of old pantyhose, cut into bands or "ribbons" to tie plants to trellises, tomatoes to a cage, etc.
