This set of six supports raises plants and berries off the ground. They’re supposed to decrease mold and mildew problems, especially during wet growing seasons.
Last year, bugs kept crawling under my melons and eating from underneath. These melon and squash cradles might help with that problem–or at least I would see it happening.

I started using these clips last year, and I love them. They loosely hold stems to trellises, eliminating the use of ties. They come in two sizes, small and large, for different sized stems.
