Shirley Bovshow shares the perfect stakes for planting our flowers.


Use the right stake for your plant.

  1. For smaller plants and container plants, use a “ring” or “twig” stake
  2. Small trees should be shored up with a set of “lodge pole” stakes – attached around the tree by a rubber or material covered “guy wire band”. Make sure the tree has a slight flexibility and is not rigid.
  3. For a new way to display cascading vine plants consider a “living canopy”
