  • Description

    Finding plant support rings that are practical and attractive is a challenge, which is why we are so delighted to have these wonderful British made support rings.  They are designed to support most herbaceous plants and to add rustic charm to herbaceous borders at a reasonable price.

    The innovative design combines high tensile wire hoops with a traditional cleaved chestnut stake. 

    The ingenious way the hoops are fixed to the stake provides two key benefits for gardeners:

     - The hoops are part of a wire spiral, which means they can be ‘corkscrewed’ onto a mature plant.  In addition, the bottom hoop can be temporarily expanded to fit round bushy foliage.  So if you forget to stake your plant before its too big, which we all do from time to time, help is at hand.

     - The high tensile wire has a memory much like a spring, so the hoops remain perpendicular to the stake when open, but can be easily collapsed for winter storage.  When collapsed the support is less than 5cm deep, making stacking and storage easy.

    The chestnut is locally sourced in Kent and hand cleaved.  Sweet chestnut is an outstanding timber for stakes as it is naturally tough and long lasting and does not require any form of chemical treatment.  Sweet chestnut coppices are grown on a 30 year cycle, making the timber sustainable and carbon neutral.

    Dimensions: stake 100cm, hoops 38cm and 48cm

    It is important that, in the open position, the specially made hook at the top of the support is secured around the front of the stake, not the back.  This ensures that the wire spiral remains perpendicular to the stake when in use.

    To collapse flat, the hook is pulled away from the stake and returned to its position behind the stake, allowing the spiral to lay flat against the pale.

    Mark Harman

    Mark Harman

    Master craftsman who turned his hand to plant supports

    As the son and grandson of master cabinetmakers, Mark was always destined to work with wood in one way or another.

    Born and raised in rural West Sussex, from an early age Mark knew his fathers coveted profession would eventually shape his career, and so the learning process started.

    After a long period restoring "high-end" antique furniture in Munich, Mark moved to Kent with his German wife Franziska and their three children.  It was in Kent that the journey of the plant support rings began when Franziska, head gardener at The Orangery at Mystole near Canterbury, expressed her dissatisfaction with the plants supports available on the market.  Franziska couldn’t find anything to support herbaceous plants that wasn’t either too expensive or too ugly.  Mike took up the challenge and after three years of tweaking and testing came up with an ingenious solution using locally sourced sweet chestnut which we think will be a welcome relief to herbaceous border owners up and down the country.
