You can save a lot of space and get more vegetables by growing your cucumbers and vine vegetables up a trellis. I show you how to make a 6 foot trellis for about .00 in under 15 minutes. No bolts, screws or nails. Just tie up some wire shelving to wood posts. It is that easy. This design is great for peas, pole beans, cucumbers, summer squash, winter squash and melons.

    I really enjoyed this video and I actually have some of this shelving already. Would you plant one plant per 2 pieces of shelving or could you do more? When you talked about how to train it I was thinking that maybe only one plant per 2 shelves. Thanks so much!

    could you grow  watermelons and other melons if you cemented your metal pieces & painted wood into the ground with pantyhose to hold the growing melons in?  Like your videos.

    Got the materials yesterday to make this! Have you posted any update videos of this trellis?

    Thanks for all of your informative videos! This year I will be planting in a community garden and will have limited space. I want to try and grow one watermelon plant vertically and have been researching the best ways to do so. It is very windy where I live (near a beach), so I'm wondering if I should do it this way or angle it slightly somehow to distribute the weight differently in case of strong winds/heavy fruit. Thanks in advance for any tips.

    Do you prune your cucumber vines? Do you limit how many vines come from the plant? How close should the mulch be to the plant? Last year I had terrible trouble with bitter cucumbers!!

    Can you grow musk melons on your Trellis that you make or are they to heavy? Thanks Tom

    I misread the title and was hoping to learn how to grow a six-foot cucumber.

    Are those posts made of treated wood?

  • This is necessary if you're thinking about planting in a restricted area, we didn't have much space to use but this method is great. Thanks
