Lots of plants need support to stop them flopping around, permanent planting like the tall purple/blue flower spikes of herbaceous Agastache, Dahlias or annuals such as cornflowers especially if you want nice straight stems for cut flowers.
It helps to get this support in early so that plants can grow up through it, it looks natural and is easier than trying to encourage plants into supports when they’re getting quite big … believe me I’ve tried.
I love these woven twigs, they look lovely before the plants have grown through them.
eventually though, the supports for herbaceous plants will be covered so it doesn’t matter too much in the long term if something more utilitarian is used.
Have look at this earlier post for more inspiration
