Trellis?

Post by Carry Bean on Wed Jul 20, 2016 1:36 pm

I've never seen them around here but I want one. I have a plant in the wrong place & it needs to be climbing on something. Any obvious places they would be sold?

Call your neighborhood carpenter for a wooden one, or ironworker for one made of iron. Either can be set in concrete, if you wish.

They have had pvc ones at Home Depot in the past. At least they won't get eaten by termites or rust away.
Or you could buy some pvc pipe and connectors and with silicone make your own. Or even copper tubing and connectors and caps would be spectacular although pricier.

Good info.  This whatever it is grows like a weed so it would probably cover whatever I use quickly.  Thanks.
I also always wanted a bottle tree like they have in the South. Might do that too.

If you are handy with tools it is easy enough. Go to a madereria and ask for fajillas. These are 2" x 1" and normally 2.5m - 3m long. Cut them up and screw together in the shape and size you need.

Trellis design

Post by Sunnyvmx on Sat Sep 17, 2016 7:44 am

My friend here in San Juan Cosala is going to buy 4 concrete pillars and lay a wrought iron lattice panel on top. This will be placed over the concrete bench in his garden. The yellow flowered vine will have no trouble clinging to it as I feel would be a problem with PVC pipe. I have made many bird and parrot gyms with PVC and had to wrap them with tape as they are so slippery. We tried it in Catemaco and the vines wound up curled around the bottom of the posts so we tried to use a thin wire wrap, but never did successfully solve the problem. I have had an orchid bench and trellis made with wrought iron and set on a patio that I enjoy.
