Talkback: How to make a rustic trellis

Hi, Yes this is very useful. Im having problems with my Clematis, I have 6 different types, the problem im having is no matter how much i water or dont, the plants do really well and then just as they are about to flower they start to die, I have tried everything including feeding with munure. My garden is three yrs old any tips??



  • I love the ideas of "How To" but more detail and start to finish photos would be helpful. Keep in mind also that not only do UK citizens read your website and read the magazines (when available at the local bookstore) but US citizens do too.

    I am a faithful reader and I love the content produced.

    Best Regards

    I made this for my old garden out of thin florist type wire and supports from an old willow obelisk. I have just followed this idea in my new garden. My next door neighbour was going to dump some old style chestnut fencing so I have used 2 lengths of it to hang off concrete posts on back fence. As chestnut posts were already strung together cost was £0. The third I had to wire the posts together. Although the clematis is still very small (1st year) the 'trellis' breaks up the look of what would otherwise be a long boring fence (90ft). Can't wait for plants to grow.
