Build a trellis. Using sturdy materials like 2 x 4’s and hardware cloth, you can fashion trellises for all of your climbing and vining edibles, making more room in the ground for vegetables and herbs that tend to bush or clump. Small pumpkins, summer squash, cucumbers, peas, and green beans will love scrambling up the trellis, and they’ll be easier to maintain and harvest when their long vines are elevated.
A great idea to help your garden grow fuller and longer! * Sturdy trellis is ideal for squash, cucumber, melons and other vining crops * Trellising vines increases air circulation to minimize disease problems * Keeps vines and fruits off soil for a cleaner, better harvest
