I stopped at my local hardware/garden center store the other night and decided I’d splurge on these fancy, just under $2 and $5 plant stakes!
I typically just use random branches and some string or twisty-ties I have laying around the house.
I thought these were less expensive than I’d expected, would last longer and would look a bit cleaner/nicer in the garden.
So, I splurged ($14) and bought them for my Peonies and Hollyhocks.
Yesterday morning I got up, made coffee, you know, the usual morning routine. Then I excitedly went out to place my fancy new plant stakes!
My poor Hollyhocks have grown so tall, they’ve been fallen over laying, yet still blooming, on the ground!
I took the stakes out and went to remove the packaging and I was Seriously Shocked! The garden stakes gave a WARNING ⚠️ Label!
No... not for like safety concerns or something you’d logically think!
A freaking CANCER WARNING!!! ⚠️
I returned them to the store yesterday!!!
My Hollyhocks are also happily standing tall again... with twisty-tie string and hooks!
= NO CANCER In MY GARDEN!!
