I'm new to the forum and am hoping that I haven't missed an existing thread on this subject. I'll be really grateful for any useful tips.
A few years back on a Gardeners' World programme Monty demonstrated making metal plant supports by bending a rod using a dustbin former. I wish I'd noted more of the details, not least what metal rod he was using. I've been told at a local diy store that unless it was aluminium (and I'm sure it wasn't) heat would have been needed!
Does anyone recall this programme and maybe given the plant supports a go? I'd love to hear how successful you were - and of course what material you used as well as any tips you could give. I have many herbaceous bedswhich I love, but purchasing ready-made supports is expensive.
