Best Cable Ties to Use in the Garden

If you’re a keen gardener, cable ties are a really useful addition to your toolkit. From securing plants, to organising tools in your shed, there are many purposes cable ties can be used for. 

With many different types and colours available, here are some of the best cable ties to use in the garden.

Green cable ties

Keep your plants secure and tidy with our range of green cable ties. They are self-locking, durable, very strong, and the green colour means they won’t stand out against foliage. Our nylon green cable ties are available in eight lengths from 100mm to 762mm, and five widths from 2.5mm to 9mm.

Our green releasable cable ties are ideal for securing growing vegetable plants to stakes to give them support. As the plants get bigger, you can release the cable ties, resize and move them to give the plants more space to grow. 

If you’re growing lots of varieties of vegetables, our printed cable ties could come in handy to make plant identification easy. 

Brown cable ties

If you have lots of climbing roses or other plants that need training while they grow, we recommend using nylon brown cable ties. These are thin, light and unobtrusive. They are suitable for tying stems to trellises, fences, or walls, if you have some screw hooks already in place.

You can also use them to secure netting, construct frames for runner beans, or build wigwams for growing peas and other climbing vegetables.

If you have any young trees in your garden, brown cable ties can be used to support them. Simply tie them around the trunk and support. .

Reusable and releasable cable ties

Releasable cable ties are perfect for the garden as they are designed to be reopened and adjusted, unlike standard cable ties. This reduces waste as you can reuse them an almost limitless number of times. 

Our releasable trigger cable ties come in six colours - black, white, yellow, blue, green and red. They are 250mm long and 7.5mm wide and the quick release mechanism is easily released by hand. 

Our hook and loop cable ties are another option for organising items in your shed or greenhouse. They are made of a strong textile material and are reusable. 

Biodegradable cable ties

An alternative to reusable cable ties are our white biodegradable cable ties. They are designed to biodegrade after at least two years, under exposure to UV light, heat, moisture and microorganisms. They come in two lengths - 150mm and 300mm. 

Black cable ties

Our black cable ties are handy for using in the garden all year round, for multiple applications.  They’re useful for attaching protective covers to garden furniture in the winter, hanging tools in the shed, or holding pipes for garden watering systems in place. 

In winter, you can use black cable ties to help decorate your garden and house with lights. Make an impressive display by attaching fairy lights to the branches of a tree with cable ties, or line your fences with a string of solar lights. 

We also sell heavy duty black cable ties, which are resistant to weathering, and black releasable cable ties if you want to reuse them in future. 

UV resistant cable ties

UV stabilised cable ties are designed for use outdoors or in other places where there would be long term exposure to UV rays or heat. They are ideal for use in gardens or greenhouses where they will be situated in daily sunlight over several years.
