    I got four rolls of twine. Two green and two natural in a pound shop for a pound would you believe!
    It's done the job. I was gratified to see less twine elsewhere for  £4.99 a pop. Perhaps it could make superior knots. Who knows?

    I bought that twine but the following year it breaks as soon as you touch it.

    Often it's not needed after a year. I'm not too  bothered if I need to replace it. . Its better than the twisty plastic coated metal that I used to use. At least it disappears on the compost heap

    Not good if you want to tie climbers though.

    So want you want is a disassembled old fashioned mop head - soft, strong but not very, very long ... hence my question.

    In our last house we had a climbing rose by the front door which was tied up with the ribbon from a parcel from Paul Smith.

    I've started using lengths of thick tights, cut access the leg is just the right size.  It’s soft on stalks and branches.  I knew I’d find a use for those hideous tights.😀
