Peonies and larger varieties benefit from this particular design, with the heads able to be held up high and individually supported thanks to the sturdy grid. Herbaceous plants, such as delphiniums and heleniums, will also find great support via a grow through ring.

The use of a grow through ring makes maintaining clumps of flowers easy too, with foliage able to be shaped as it is supported for an elegant, beautiful display at every stage.
