Default Easily released Cord knot tying round a recycle box

"john west" wrote in message
...
I have a number of Bamboo Plants planted in unwanted Council Recycle
boxes.
After a while they are almost impossible to get out of the box, because
the roots have grown so compacted.
I intend sawing down one side of the box and folding it down so i can just
slide the plant out of the box.
To re-use the box again i need to tie a long cord around the box to keep
the cut side in its original upright position for the next plant to grow
in it.


Since good Tying Cord is expensive does anyone know of a good 'Gripping'
Knot that i can easily 'release' at a later date without having to cut the
cord?

The best knot for that is the reef knot, which you can tie tightly
on a corner and move. Alternatively, use a surgeon's knot, followed
by an extra thumb knot, making the top half into a reef knot. The
securest one is the constrictor knot, but that is a b*gg*r to undo.
I use all of those and more.


Truckers hitch works much better and surprise surprise,
being quick and easy to apply and remove is the reason
truckers use it.


Perhaps you could explain, or even better show an example, so that we are
talking about the same thing.

I was taught the truckers hitch 50 years ago & it needs an anchor point at
both ends.

I couldn’t find a good example last time I tried.
particularly with how the internal 'pulley' is done.

I was too.

Nothing to stop you joining both ends in your situation.

I grow Phyllostachys nigra ("Black" bamboo), and it's taken 7 years to

Same here in more than decade it hasn't really spread. Its' got a lot
thicker in the middle of the clump but hasn't spread by more than a 6
inches in any direction at ground level. Now some shots are coming out
at 45 degrees rather than vertical. I cut off shoots that don't end up
reaching to the sky. For most of the time it also stayed at around 5 to
6 feet but now some shoots are up at 10 feet, again not a problem
because they are thin and airy - think tall grass rather than tree.
