The Garden Twine and Decorative Tin are a handy roll of 3-ply natural jute twine in a sturdy enameled tin. The tin keeps the twine neat and tidy. The twine is natural and biodegradable, and the tin will last for many years. There's something rustic about the cream coloured enameled tin. The older these tins get, the better they look. Garden twine is something we seem to buy at least every couple of years. It can be used to tie up sagging plants or to create a trellis. We like using it to secure the corners of bamboo stakes set in place to provide structure for climbing plants. And because jute is biodegradable, if bits of it end up in the compost, it just adds carbon to the soil.
