You may remember that the heavy winds last week blew over one of my trellises.
Yesterday’s snow is now only a memory so I decided to take advantage of the dry, warmer day and repair my poor, sad trellis.
I used the same trellis frame but stapled some wire fence up over it. I have three rolls of this in my backyard-the last owners used it to partition off a garden area and I haven’t found any other use for it over the last 2 years.
I also screwed the trellis right into the house. Take that wind!
but also take off on nights/days when the temperatures drop below freezing. I’m sure it would probably be okay uncovered but I don’t really want to take the chance. In a few weeks I’ll be able to keep it uncovered permanently.
I also used bits of twine to attach the big clematis to the trellis. I really want this to fill up this whole trellis but it has a tendency to bunch up if left on its own. Hopefully separating it and training it up will get it when I want it to go!
I’m guessing that by the end of May this will have grown all the way up the trellis! I can’t wait!
