Stretch-Tie™ is much like a common bread or garbage bag tie, but is made from expandable plastic and has a non-continuous metal wire so it stretches to accommodate growth of most plant material.
Plastic and Wire working in harmony
The keys to the patented* Stretch-Tie™ design are the two components each doing their part. The wire only aids in the tying process but never girdles the plant. The entire length of the plastic stretches independent of the wire allowing several seasons of growth secured to a stake without breaking or girdling.
Currently Stretch-Ties™ are being packaged in cases of 2000 or 4000 for commercial growing applications.
Consumer packs of 40 are also available in the 6x1/2 size.
Tan is the original color designed for strength and longevity.
Clear and Green have similar longevity but contain more EVA which makes it softer and allows it to stretch more for faster growing, softer bark plant material.
