LEND SUP­PORT

NZ Gardener - Garden Diary 2018 - - Vegetable Trials -

Se­cure newly planted trees to stakes with soft fab­ric ties (old tights or T-shirts cut into strips). Ex­ist­ing trees may need new or re­place­ment sup­port, es­pe­cially in windy sites. Don’t overdo it – the tree needs to be braced so it doesn’t rock wildly in the wind, yet it must still move a lit­tle so the roots are en­cour­aged to es­tab­lish as strong an­chors.
