Hydrofarm HGBB4 bamboo stakes play an important role in the early development and growth habits of the young plants and trees. They can be the difference between a straight tree or one that grows crooked. These 4-foot bamboo stakes allow the proper flex and exercise for the growing plant, so as not to interfere with normal root development. Made from a renewable natural material, these stakes cost less when compared to wood or metal. Use as plant stakes and markers, or as supports for row covers and potted plants. Package contains 25 bamboo stakes.
