Repairing trellis

Post  Mastiff07 on 5/28/2012, 1:16 pm

My husband was using weed whacker around the trellis and caught the nylon trellis. How do I fix this? It already has sweet peas growing on it. It was towards the bottom of it

Can you zip tie it together to the poles?

Or you can use twine and sort of weaves from what's left of the nylon to the pole. I bet your Husband feels terrible, but all it not lost.
Truly, if the damage is just on the corner, the peas will attach themselves to the other peas that are still supported. Very Happy

It wasn't near a corner. It's the bottom 3 rows in one section affected. The sweet peas were at the other end. I'll try to tie it. Would it still support cucumbers?

Maybe zip ties would work to reattach it? A picture would really help for ideas...
