TRELLISES! 8 Replies

No matter what type of gardening you do, trellises are in demand! I had a strong wind hit and it just about took all my hollyhocks down right at the time of their prime bloom. I wound up having to…Continue

Lena, Do not get discouraged. There are other things you can add as props to cover areas that are a bit untidy looking. Measure the metal barrel container and when your out-and-about, look at items that you can pick-up (free or very cheap) as cover up's. Getting blocks of wood at various different heights and putting pots on them can help to cover rough looking areas also. Free bricks can also come in handy. I use them everywhere. You can also build-up pedestals with old 12 x 12 tiles. Of course there are many more discussions on the way, so stay tuned! And keep your pretty chin-up!

I use anything I can get my hands on to grow in or with.
It all works, but it is a tidy persons worst nightmare.
Anyone with a neatness complex could get physically ill visiting me.

Hi Sheri, thanks so much for starting this group and putting so much energy into it. Your discussion groups are stimulting me so much and every picture gets me going in different directions.

I am a huge fan of recycling and reusing all sorts of things, indoors and out. I credit a lot of this to my Mom and Dad who were raised during the Great Depression. We never threw anything away when I was growing up since there was always another use for it later.
