Q.Growing Vines Up Posts

Anonymous added on May 27, 2011 | Answered

I have 4 plants, 2 jasmine and 2 clematis, that I want to grow up two different 8 foot posts to an 18 inch wide, 15 foot trellis. How do I get the plants up the posts? Ideas I’ve had (wrap the post with chicken wire, buy two of those cheap 15 inch x 6′ trellises from the hardware store and somehow attach them to the posts, hang some wire from the top and loop it around–this is the most invisible idea I’ve had, but not sure how to make it work) are either ugly or questionable.

I would use bird netting instead of chicken wire. It is nearly invisible once the plants are on it and can simply be stapled on. You can find it at the hardware store as well.
