Protection for Tall Stems
The metal ‘Jules Gravereaux Garden Stakes of Classic Garden Elements are true companions for standard roses, perennials, lilies and many other plants. They provide stability for rose stems in difficult soil and in every weather. Thanks to their ingeniously simple anchoring system, these metal garden stakes maintain their original posture over the years. The installation of these metal garden stakes is straightforward. Begin by inserting the anchor into the ground in the position you have chosen. The four-wing design of the 40 cm-long, hot-dip galvanised steel anchor ensures a high degree of stability. Next, fix the garden stake on the anchor. It is important that the metal support faces the wind, usually westwards with regard to the position of the plant. In a final step, bind the rose stem to the garden stake, beneath the grafting point, using bast fibre or a sturdy piece of string. The pictures in our gallery show how it is done.
Designed 20 years ago, our Classic Garden Elements plant support anchoring system has stood the test of time, however extreme the weather conditions. Even in the sandy soil of the North Sea islands off the coast of Germany, our garden stakes have withstood high-speed winds.
