Traditional Garden Twine

Nutscene 1922 is the gardeners’ original secret weapon.

Nutscene and the story of jute twine, or garden twine, is entwined (pun intended) with the history of Dundee as much as jam and journalism is. At one time there were an estimated 131 jute processors in and around Dundee. Nutscene being one of them. The industry employed over 50,000 women workers. In fact, Dundee was nicknamed ‘Jutoplolis’.

Robertson Ireland ltd was established in 1922 just before the mighty crash of the jute industry. They produced jute twine, hessian sacks and gardening ancillary products. They patented the Nutscene brand in 1930. Which is still loved by gardeners and horticulturists the world over. Its name derives from the green twine being ‘not seen’ when used in the garden. The pull from the centre spool was a sensation and sales of this jute string began to grow rapidly.

The high quality garden twine that Nutscene manufacture is a staple for any green-fingered fanatic, casual grower or dedicated horticulturist. With its superior quality and foundation in British history, we can’t think of a better way to celebrate this good and green land than by using Nutscene’s jute twine. Nutscene ensured that Dundee, and indeed the UK, stayed on the map when it comes to jute string. Their dedication to maintaining high quality, and re-establishing Dundee as one of the leading places for jute.
