Default Easily released Cord knot tying round a recycle box

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?
I have tried some knots, but they are working out well. Thanks.

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.

Nick Maclaren.

Isn't growing bamboo only a shade less risky than growing Japanese Knot
Weed? Surely, if the roots are safely enclosed in a plastic tab, that's
a very good thing?

Anyway, the boxes are tapered, so tie a loop round tightly with a good
solid knot, then slide the loop off the taper to open it.

Yes, or no, or maybe (to choice). SOME bamboos are invasive, but
others are not.

Indeed. See "Types of bamboo" here;
https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=79

I grow Phyllostachys nigra ("Black" bamboo), and it's taken 7 years to
double its clump-size. It hasn't spread.

Being a grass, bamboo can be killed by repeated application of glyphosate.

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

Not in my experience, though I use a very similar one when relevant,
using a bowline rather than a loop knot, because that is less prone
to jamming. The problem with all such hitches are that they are very
bulky and catch on things - truckers use them because they are easy
to haul taut, but you can get the knots I mentioned adequately taut
for this purpose with experience.

Nick Maclaren.

Then you arent doing it right.

Truckers hitch done right doesnít ever jam.

The problem with all such hitches are that they
are very bulky and catch on things - truckers
use them because they are easy to haul taut,


And even easier to undo.

but you can get the knots I mentioned adequately
taut for this purpose with experience.


But arent as easy to undo.
