Why Don't You: Trellis Ideas

Old ladders make great trellises
for beans and other climbers. ( wish I'd have one...)
Anchor it well into the ground and paint it in a matching/contrasting colour for an extra zest!

Have You ever thought about discarding a broken patio umbrella? Well, why don't you
remove the fabric, bury the handle (make sure it's well fixed)
in the ground and use it for a trellis.
Wonderful for small climbing roses and clematis. Watch out not to use it for heavy climbers!
I guess, Wisteria and Golden Trumpets are not really a good choice.
A small type of Lonicera or Morning Glory could work too.

Rusty old brass or iron headboards
make wonderful garden trellises. So next time you stroll at a neighbouring brocante, keep your eyes open.
