nylons for ties

I guess it would apply to any plant....the best material I've found for tying plants to a stake is women's nylon stockings. A little goes a long way. Just rip or cut strips of the stocking long enough to loop around the stem and stake. No matter how small a piece you use, it retains its elasticity and doesn't cut into the plant at all. Been using them for years.
