I have had good luck using the green stretch tie tape.



Yes I use the green nursery tape for My hibiscus grafting , But The birds are attracted to the green tape

I make sure to trim the loose ends so birds don't mistake them for worms or caterpillars or to use for nest building.

Looks like another one is pushing using the Rubber band and tie wire method
Will update .

What gauge wire are you talking about. Bell wire? Bare wire? Covered wire? At my local Home Depot near me I see many gauges copper wire I can buy by the foot. Covered and bare.

Zands itís plastic ties see pic


Thanks...I guess it works but plastic ties have a limited number of notches to tighten them up..... Maybe you have some that work "notchless".....

With the thick rubber band wrapped , then the zip tie fits snug and maintains the pressure , the notes on the ZT are very fine no slagging 👍
