Vining plants can be trained to grow on a trellis to increase plant density. This year I’ve replaced my self-watering totes with a nice SIP raised bed. This allows me to construct a much better trellis system for my vegetables! Here are some basic garden / trellis supplies that I’ve found to be indispensable: – Twine Plant Clips: http://amzn.to/2v820Lj (Amazon) – Jute Cord: http://amzn.to/2uyLhDU (Amazon) – Polyester Netting: http://amzn.to/2t5AhcN (Amazon) – 4-Way Tee PVC Fitting: http://amzn.to/2vspqKZ (Amazon) – PVC Coated Welded Wire: http://amzn.to/2utsgSE (Amazon) – Green Stretch Tie: http://amzn.to/2thLU4t (Amazon) – Turnbuckles: http://amzn.to/2upt37m (Amazon) – 16 Gauge Galvanized Steel Wire: http://amzn.to/2tvBYzu (Amazon) – 12 Gauge Galvanized Steel Wire: http://amzn.to/2uyPdo7 (Amazon) I’ve been diligently pruning and training annual veggies to grow up several plant support systems.

I’m also training fruit bearing perennials using various trellis and espalier techniques. My vining or espalier plants include air potatoes, passion fruits, currants, plums, Asian pears and a hardy kiwi. In this video we take a closer look at how fence posts, U-posts and T-posts can be used for plant training in your edible landscape or backyard orchard. They can be combined with polyester netting, galvanized wire, welded wire or lattices. Some systems will support more weight than others. Some will last much longer. They may be used to for aesthetics, creating a nice privacy screen. Or they may be barely visible, allowing plants to grow unobstructed. Growing in conventional raised beds can be highly productive. But many veggies perform even better in self-watering beds and containers. When combined with effective trellising, you’ll be amazed at how many vegetables you can squeeze into a small space!
