NEW Leaf Supports

Regular price £15.00 £0.00 Unit price per

Calling all Plant Belle Pioneers. During Spring we are offering this special trial and feedback price, for the brave to experiment and share ideas (no obligation to share, just an informal invitation to help improve and develop design ideas).

The new 'Leaf' plant supports have been designed in collaboration with RHS Wisley, these new supports are great for use in both pots and the border. You can read the potted history of the RHS leaf project and see Wisley photo shoot here.

The leaf support is produced as a single unit, a single leaf, which we will begin by offering as trial bundles, of 3 or 4 leaves. The Leaf supports can be assembled in the ground, or in a pot, to create a simple and flexible solution for supporting the stems and foliage of floppy plants.

The leaf support is designed to be used as a modular system, offering endless options of leaf groups, forming and extending the support offered to your individual plant support needs. For example, the tall leaf design, can be arranged together in a group, offering a novel new solution for climbing plants, in pots on the patio, or as a feature in the border. See images for leaf grouping ideas.

With three height sizes and two pack sizes, you can create endless options for leaf groups and arrangements, let your imagination decide how best to support your plants.

Short Leaf Support 55cm tall
Medium Leaf Support 65cm tall
Tall Leaf Support 88cm tall

Growing climbers up and around the Leaf supports is like creating speedy topiary. My current favourite Leaf climber is Sollya the Bluebell Creeper. Try also the patio Clematis and the fabulous, scented Honeysuckle ‘Japonica Aureoreticulata’, with its pretty yellow veined leaves and white fragrant flowers in Summer. 

In the borders, try arranging three groups of three Leaf supports together, to support a large swathe of herbaceous perennials. The Leaves also do a great job of supporting tall wayward grasses, like Calamagrostis and my favoured Melica altissima 'Atropurpurea'

 

NOTES: As per our Plant Tunnels, the Leaf supports will arrive silver in colour (just-made) and will transform to the lovely rust finish in situ, with the help of mother nature. 

NOTES: In compacted ground the Leaves need only push in to about 5cm-7cm, in loosely prepared soil, compact down best you can before installing the supports. They may need to go in deeper to get more stability. Alternatively you can tie the Leaf legs together if you require more stability.

SHIPPING NOTES: We can send 4 bundles of Leaves for our standard £9.95 parcel charge. The Leaf supports will also fit in parcels with Belles. We will also be able to pack the Leaves with other smaller items. They can not travel with our 'Long' or 'Flat' parcels (Hurdles, large Hoops, Bean Poles, etc.). If you have questions, or wish to add Leaf Supports to an XL parcel, email the request. See 'Delivery info' for our current delivery prices & details.
