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...

Response from Vigoro TeamOct 28, 2019
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

    Too easily bent, even when driven into the ground with a rubber mallet it needs to be staked with zip ties at the base to keep it upright and sturdy.

    Product worked great! Was easy to install and worked as it should. I like how one end is pointed for going in the ground and the other end is flat for driving into ground.

    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)

      Another misrepresented Vigoro product. Very weak, bends easily. Even used in pairs this product is only adequate to for staking the branches of a shrub that probably doesn't need any support in the first place. It's not heavy duty and it is not sturdy.

        I Used them to support the freeze cover during the cold weather wave. They held very well during the wind and weather conditions prevailing at the time.

        Absolute junk
        These are hollow, thin wall, plastic stakes made in China and carry the "Vigoro" name. There is a super-thin metal liner inside the green plastic shell. I bought two. When placement was attempted in relatively soft soil both broke in the middle. Absolute junk.

          Good stakes
          I've used a number of these stakes over the years and have been pleased. I currently have some helping Kiwi trees grow up toward the trellis system and another one helping a young apple tree. I also use them as posts to surround plants with plastic netting to keep the deer and other animals away. They are sturdy yet still flexible so there are limitations. If you are not sure check them out in the store first. For the most part once you put them in the ground they will stand up straight but I would not recommend them for more rigid applications like large tomato plants producing weighty tomatoes (get cages instead).

          not good
          These stakes are not as sturdy as we hoped they would be. We bought thirty of them for tomato plants in the garden. Four stakes got snapped in half, and six got bent from the weight of the tomato plant. Will see how the rest hold up next season.
