Catenary trellis

Sweet Tatorman's picture

I use a lot of baling twine in my gardening; laying out planting rows, Florida weave supports for tomatoes and peppers. Any given piece of twine usually gets used at least 3 years for various tasks. The final use is often for incorporation in a catenary trellis. Photos provided are pretty much self explanatory. The plant being trellised in these photos is Malabar spinach which is a twining vine, i.e., no tendrils.

Bracing of the end T-posts is very necessary.

I love your gardening photos, there is usually something really beautiful to admire. What a lovely trellis.

Over here people trellis climbing beans such as haricots, and peas. Some people build pyramids to grow them up the sides of.
