Peony supports/cages wanted

Does anyone know where I can buy these online? I want some exactly like this, no multiple rings, no curves, no bells, no whistles or finials. The only place I've ever seen them is at the Malvern shows. I believe they are called Peony supports/cages.

    My daughter @WonkyWomble knows someone in Suffolk who can make them … he has a stall at local markets etc.  Perhaps it’s worth asking around locally? Oh sorry just seen that you specifically said online. My mistake. 😞 

    Or there’s these but you’d need a hacksaw  blade or file or somesuch to take its knobs off

    I use this company

    Peony supports tend to have ball finials, but they also do plain ones. I have some for other tall perennials.

    There are some close to your specifications here. I have used their products; they’re very good.

    Another vote for, what you are after are called grow-through supports as Tack says. Peony supports tend to be sturdier and more expensive, do they actually need to be or is this just a way of squeezing more cash out of you? Don’t know!

    I.have found that some peony supports are too narrow at the base, difficult to put over a mature peony without piercing the roots.
    They flare out nicely for the stems to arch gracefully but the narrow base lets them down.

  • AnniDAnniD Posts: 11,158 do show at Malvern, so that may well be the company you saw there  :)

    I've spent hours looking for these, and thanks to you all I've found them. The ones advertised by PlantSupports are exactly the same sizes and designs as the ones I have, so probably it was them who were selling them at Malvern.
    I've found them really sturdy and durable and thoroughly recommend them.
