10 Easy Pieces: Garden Tuteurs

July 10, 2018

Tuteur is the French word for “tutor,” and in the garden, tuteurs teach plants valuable lessons. Whether you’re training night-blooming moonflowers or papery-thin clematis, climbing vines and flowers will flourish with a little support from these pyramidal structures.

We’ve rounded up 10 tuteurs to add an air of French insouciance to your garden.

Available in three sizes, a zinc Garden Tuteur with a square base for support and a hand-forged oak leaf and acorn finial (shown also in the feature photo at top) is \$\1\28 to \$398 at Terrain.
