Lightbulbtrellis use


I have a bright red painted chimney on the side of my house and other than being red, it's plain. I hope to attach these in a grid on the chimney and let cypress vine cover it. Then remove all at once when it too cold for the cypress. I also have an ivy but it is a climber and I don't want it to leave its roots all over my chimney like it has done to my cinder block porch foundation

Xeolyte,
Thanks for posting this again. Those masonry ladders are so neat. They would work for so many applications, wouldn't they.
We I first saw them I thought. A hoop house over a veggie bed. Three put together forming a triangle, stood on end for beans or vines. Can't wait to check it out.
With all this stuff going on spring will come quick.

They worked out better than I imagined! They are just perfect!



This year I'll be growing 24 different MG's on them. Here is the layout I designed:

That is going to be so spectacular to see.
Xeolyte, when will you start most of your MG's. Think I am going to start mine quite a bit earlier to hopefully get a jump on things.

I usually start my mg's about the middle of February inside the house .. They are usually the last wave of seeds. In about 2 weeks I'll be starting the first wave .. I'll post another thread with my list for this year. I start them late because they grow so fast that they end up grabbing and twining around everything in sight in the greenhouse and it's a real chore trying to unwind them from their victims without harming them or their victims .. a problem I'm having now with all the rooted passiflora cuttings in the gh .. I have to spend a few minutes every day cutting off newly forming tendrils so they can't grab on to other plants.
