Well, I convinced my husband that a trellis was necessary, and was so pleased with what he built me. Not only do trellises, obelisks and other garden structures look good, but they give much needed support for climbers, but actually, they provide extra room for plants in the garden by offering that vertical space!
Form and Function. I like that a lot!
Pictured here are Rattlesnake pole beans. They are really tasty heirlooms that I can't wait to pick and eat!
The pods actually have a rattlesnake "esque" pattern on them, so they not only taste good, but they're pretty to look at on the vine too. It's an old time favorite as both a snap bean and dry bean used in soups. This heavy producer provides beans withing 73 days.
So, garden structures are ideal when you have little space for growing a garden, or even if you have several hundred acres!
There are many types of vegetable plants that grow very well with the help of a trellis, and many different structures that can be used to grow not only food, but many other climbers and vines that will look beautiful, and have much needed support, in the garden.
