Handmade iron plant supports made with raw iron that develops a beautiful rich brown patina. They are maintenance free and can permanently stay in gardens or containers year-round for winter interest.

We had these rose benders, or hoops, custom designed for training shrub roses. Using benders is a common technique in England, although they generally use lengths of coppiced hazel. Benders are positioned around the skirts of the roses and long new canes are bent horizontally and tied to the benders to stimulate dormant buds along the length of the canes for maximum flowering. We don’t have a local supply of pliable wood appropriate for this, so these iron versions are a great alternative.
