Flimsy; nearly took my tree down with it when it bent
These might be useful for a lightweight plant but never a tree. I have tried six on two different types/girth/height of trees over the last two years, and every single stake has bent or cracked just subsurface causing my trees to lean over severly that’s now taking me a lot of extra time to correct. I used to be able to buy the two-inch thick round wooden stakes that were 6 or so feet tall at my local Home Depot (which are awesome. They’re still going strong on another set of trees Ive had for three yrs now, but I can’t find them anymore), but these Vigoros are the tallest stakes I can find now and I hate them, hate them, hate them.

      I bought some of these stakes to help support a small branch with lemons on it...Within seconds of resting the branch on the stakes one of them bent...(Supposedly there's a steel rod in each of them)...The branch was pretty heavy, but I was using three of these poles, and they were not strong at all...I will be returning them tomorrow morning, and I definitely don't recommend this product...

      Berge thank you for your review. I hope you found a stake that would hold up your lemon tree! Just replied to another person that was trying to use these stakes to support a tree. These stakes are designed more for supporting gardening plants. But love that you tried to use them to support your tree, we love when our customers use our products in ways we had not thought of. Hope it was not too much of an inconvenience to you. Vigoro-MAT

        not sturdy
        These things are junk. The metal on the inside is extremely thin and bends when trying to put them in the ground. After they are in the ground the flex quite a bit after you tie something to them. (Small magnolia tree for me)

          They last 1 year
          The stakes are a thin metal cylinder surrounded by a plastic coating. They bend and break easy especially if the soil you are using them in is harder. I found that the metal u-posts are typically better to use in most applications. Yes they are more expensive but they are more sturdy and last far longer making the price difference worth it.

          Hello Jordan, thank you for writing this detailed review. If you are working with hard soil, we recommend dampening it with warm water before inserting the stake into the soil. While U-Posts may have worked for your application, they tend to be better used for fencing. We apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused. Vigoro-MAT
