Enter your e-mail here to subscribe to Pegplant’s Post, an e-newsletter about gardening in the Washington DC metropolitan area. This monthly communication lists local gardening events, recently published gardening books, recipes, articles, and tips specific to this area. Each issue also features the opportunity to win a free plant or gardening-related product. For the upcoming November 2020 Pegplant’s Post, the giveaway is a plant support kit with the evolutionary C-BITEs clips.
The C-BITEs clips are unique plastic clips that attach to garden stakes. This enables gardeners to connect stakes to create different structures such as a ladder, an A-frame, or a cage. Perfect for vining plants like tomatoes, cucumbers, and melons, these structures can be assembled in the spring and taken apart in the fall to save space. The plastic clips are reusable and can be used with plastic coated stakes and bamboo stakes. Jason Rider, owner of Thriving Design, designed and patented the clips. He purposely designs and manufactures products to minimize a negative impact on the environment. The Thriving Design business donates 1 percent of profits to non-profit companies that focus on conservation of the environment and food security for all people.
