This is my go-to twine: strong 3-ply jute twine, available in a variety of spool sizes - one to suit every gardener's needs!
For day-to-day maintenance rounds in clients' gardens, I prefer something that fits neatly in my jacket pocket (60m or 110m) or my toolbelt pouch (30m). The 220m spool is excellent for bigger jobs like marking out or wrapping plants.
Nutscene Jute Twines have many uses in the garden: staking and plant support, tying-on tender stems, marking out lines for sowing.

Gardener's Kit Top Twine Tip: Spools of twine can be easily carried or used from the pocket, leaving both hands free to tie. By drawing the twine from the center of the spool, you can be assured of tangle-free twine. Pull the twine up and around your neck, leaving a long length dangling down the other side of your body. Every time you need to tie something - simply grab the dangling end, pull and tie-on the plant, cutting the twine only when you're done. What a time-saver!! All without removing the ball of twine from your pocket each time and trying to hold it and the plant and your snips/scissors.
