THE COMPANY-Nutscene Twines LTD

Nutscene ® a brand born  in 1922.

The Company-Nutscene Twines Ltd, Produces the Nutscene brand  with pride. The patented “Greentwist” centre pull lock tie spool of twine was first produced in Dundee, Scotland. When this wonderful green twine was used to tie up plants it was, of course, ‘not seen’ giving rise to “Nutscene!”

 Nutscene are very much seen today, with an offering of 22  colours of Jute twine, we like to call the offering a twine fest!

The Nutscene Heritage Range

Today, Nutscene is located a short drive away from the city of Dundee, in the rural county of Angus. Still using the original machinery first used by them back in 1922, Nutscene still produces its own range of high quality garden twines and employs local people to do so.

 In recent years Nutscene has continued to pride itself in product development and innovation. In 1999, Nutscene first launched a wonderful range of high quality design-led giftware for gardeners, and it was at this time that the iconic “Tin of’ Twine™” was first showcased. It now sells worldwide and has remained just as popular as it first did on its launch date.

The offering of products has grown significantly since that first launch, and its popularity increases-across the globe.


Nutscene ® has been involved in the manufacturing and processing of jute twines and ancillary products for the gardener since 1922. The company patented the first “pull from centre spool” of garden twine, which has been copied by many but never equalled. Our name is derived from our world renowned green garden twine which, when tied around the plant cannot be seen, thus “Not Seen” – ‘Nutscene‘.

The original greentwist twine

 From our origins within the jute industry in Dundee, Scotland – the home of “Jute, Jam and Journalism”, our ‘Heritage Range’ was conceived and developed. Utilising natural materials , the range reintroduced jute as an on-trend and eco-friendly material. This company has been in partnership with a number of British artisans , thus supporting a network of rural business throughout the UK.

Here at Nutscene, we take pride in the fact that we still manufacture our own twines using traditional methods and the original machinery.
