No bra jokes, please! I'm growing a galia type melon in my greenhouse. It's a grafted plant and is in a large container. It's growing well and has now started to overshoot the two small fan trellises that I stuck in the container to get it started. Problem is, I have no idea how to support it further out/up. It looks like it's going to get really big... what do you do? My greenhouse doesn't have anything on the roof that I could tie anything to.
Could you build a bigger frame around the plants by pushing 6ft canes into the ground either side of the existing one and string some wire across in a zig-zag.
Have you by any chance got one of those tall, slim plastic greenhouse frames knocking about? Remove all the shelves and use it like a cage over the plant.
I've done this before for cucumbers.
The frames are handy things to keep even after the covers have disintegrated. Good for extra shelving in the greenhouse too, mine is full of pots and trays at the moment.
