Save growing space with a trellis!
We now have trellises available for sale in a kit form. These trellises are specially designed to be strong enough to hold vertically climbing plants (normally grown along the ground). With a trellis like this you can grow beans, tomatoes, capsicum, melons and pumpkins. Growing a pumpkin vertically will only use up about 50cm by 30cm instead of taking over the entire garden. If you want to lean more about different food growing trellis tricks, take a look at this article.
What’s in the kit:
- 3 / 2.4m lengths of 20NB galvanised steel tube to make the frame
- 2/ 0.5m 32MB galvanized steel tube footing.
- 2 / brackets to connect the tube together using a spanner.
- 1 / 2.4m x 1.8m roll of galvanized trellis mesh to attach to the frame.
The standard trellis is 2.4m high and 2.4m wide but these can be easily made in different sizes by request.
The trellis costs $145 and include free delivery in the Blue Mountains and $20 to Sydney. Please contact us for delivery costs outside these areas.
The kit should take around 1 hour to setup and is very simple to put together. A link to an instructional video will be provided.
If you just want to make this up yourself, you can take the list above to your nearest metal suppliers. They should understand all the measurements and cut it to size for you too.
