A plant spiral is a great climbing aid

Plant spirals give plants sufficient hold

Modern plant spirals can be used as absolutely useful helpers in any garden. It doesn't matter whether climbing plants are tied to it, perennials are stabilized with it, or vegetables (tomatoes, cucumbers, beans, etc.) are raised with it. The plant spiral ensures sufficient hold and thus also a neat garden picture. Pretty trellises can also be created with several plant spirals that are stuck together.

Which plant spirals are there?

Plant spirals made of plastic, aluminum and metal are available - also powder-coated. It is advisable to buy plant spirals that can be pulled out in length again and with which flexible heights of around 2 meters can be achieved.

You can use plant spirals not only outdoors, but also in tub plants and in the greenhouse. For which very small plant spirals, with heights between 0.50 meters and 1.00 meters, are then offered in specialist shops.

Tip: Most plant spirals can be cut to the required length.

Use plant spirals correctly

Plant spirals are placed in the soil in the immediate vicinity of the plant, which is why the underside is usually offered with a point. If the plant grows up on the plant spiral, you can also fix it on the plant spiral - this works best with thin plant binders or plant clips.

Use plate plant spirals correctly

Plate plant spirals ensure that perennial plants (e.g. dahlias, peonies, gladiolus, etc.) have an optimal hold in all weather conditions. To do this, you must carefully stabilize the spiral, preferably in the middle of the plant, being careful not to damage the root. The individual plant shoots then grow up within the spiral, which gives them all-round support and still makes them look natural.

Tip: If you cut back the perennial plant in autumn, you should simply leave the plate spiral in place. In this way, the new shoots grow directly into the spiral in spring.
