Ideas to improve your garden
Gardening is good for the soul.
So we've come up with 5 super-handy ideas with Sugru Mouldable Glue, to help make it all a little easier.
1. Make custom grips for your favourite tools
After an hour of prepping flowerbeds, even the comfiest handle can make your hands ache. That's because handles tend to have a one-size-fits-all design - but with the help of Sugru you can make your own customised garden tools.
2. Fix your watering can
Where would a gardener be without their trusty watering can? Whether yours is metal or plastic, repair a leak in your watering can and let it age gracefully, with a little help from Sugru!
3. Create colourful and flexible plant supports
Shoots grow quickly in the spring, so training plants is a great way to keep your garden neat and your plants healthy. Make plant supports for your garden with Sugru. It's springiness makes it flexible and perfect to support your plants without causing them damage. (Thanks to Sugru-er Paul from Dublin who's the inspiration behind this one.)
4. Patch up worn out wellies and rain boots
There are few things more annoying than wet socks! Sugru bonds brilliantly to rubber and is waterproof so it's a perfect solution to fix your leaky boots!
5. Keep your pen handy outside
Label your plants with the right pen for the job - a waterproof one! Keep it close to hand with this simple guide to making Sugru pen grips (and don't let that tea go cold!)
Oh and here's a neat idea we found to make your own labels from recycled materials!
Sugru sets 1.5mm in 12 hours, 3mm in 24 hours and thicker applications may take longer. If the Sugru's exposure to air is limited when squished between surfaces, allow up to 48 hours for it to fully set. Colder temperatures slow down the setting times.
