Just saw an Interesting trellis idea

Post  Nicola on 3/22/2013, 11:38 am

...on my Facebook feed. It came from Grit magazine's website: http://www.grit.com/Growing-Possibilities/How-To-Build-A-Better-Trellis.aspx.
His first sentence is,"In my garden, I use a sort of variant of Square Foot Gardening," but it still piqued my interest, so I thought I'd share it here.
(On another tangent, the writer's last name is Gardener; I wonder if it helps.)

That is a nice trellis for sure. I think camprn uses something similar and I have had an eye on her's for a while now thinking I might steal her idea Twisted Evil

Trellis idea

Post  memart1 on 3/22/2013, 3:18 pm

If you build your trellises as shown, they will eventually sag from the weight of the plants. A rectangle is not as strong as a triangle. Therefore I suggest a diagonal support on each end and at least one of the sides to strengthen this. Otherwise they look great, and neat.

That is quite interesting and he mentions that he can attach shade cloth to the frames.
