excellent quality, bright shiny metallic green
on 19 May 2016
I got these to tie back my willow edging to a metal fence, I didn't want to dig them in as the ground is very hard where the edging goes, and hitting them with a hammer would wreck them. I needed something that would be strong and last for a while but not as permanent as zip ties that you have to cut off. Plain wire might rust after a short while and then they'd break anyway.
I didn't realise from the picture shown but these are very shiny metallic green, the sort of ties you might use for party favours. This makes no difference for my purposes but if you're after a matt 'garden' green you'd need to get a different sort. They are nicely coloured and the wire is fully covered so rusting or rotting isn't an issue.
My willow edging is quite small and so these are the perfect size to thread through to the fence and twist tie. They are solid and don't easily untwist themselves. Remember to get them longer than you need so that there is enough left over to twist shut. They arrived in an envelope so be careful where you open them as they fall out all over the place :)
