How to Use Garden Staples as Plant Support Stakes?
In windy areas, more often newly planted trees bow to earth due to the high-speed wind. Remaining in a bent shape can have different effects on the growth of these plants. Though there are a number of methods that can be used to make them upright again, a cost-effective solution is to use Garden Staples as Plant Support Stakes.

What’s Needed to Create Plant Support Stakes?
- Garden Staples (6 inch length will be sufficient. Consider buying BzBirds Landscape Staples)
- Quilt or Sewing Thread
- Rubber Mallet
Steps to Use Plant Support Stakes
- Fix the Garden staples into the ground in an inclined angle at some distance from the plant
- Tie one end of the quilt thread at a position to the plant from where it can control the plant in getting straight
- Pass through the other end of the thread between the two prongs of the Garden staple
- Strech it enough to make the plant stand straight
- Tie the thread to the staple so that the plant remains in this position
Let it remain like this for a few days and your plant will again stand tall without bending.
