Nutscene Garden Twine
Nutscene has been leading the twine industry for nearly a century, helping gardeners stay tangle free with high quality twine. This Scottish company was the first to market green twine, which was “not seen” in the garden. (That’s how they picked up their name) Great vintage packaging with a real story behind it makes the perfect gift for any discerning gardener. This tin contains over 400 feet of twine and can be re-used!
For garden and other uses. High tensile strength, but also biodegradable and compostable. Made in Great Britain since 1922.
While intended as a garden string, Nutscene twine is broadly useful. Treated with oils, Nutscence’s softness makes it easy to tie and suitable for a delicate springtime frond. It is strong enough to lash things together and, in a pinch, will work as a makeshift load-bearing clothesline.
As a natural fiber, jute is biodegradable and compostable. A length of jute twine binding the base of a new shrub will decompose into the soil. Spun jute does not stretch, helping to keep a tight hold. Its high tensile strength – strong enough to be made into shipping rope – means it can be trusted to resist snapping.
