Trellis Netting, commonly referred to as Pea Netting or Bean Netting is ideal for vegetables like tomatoes, beans, peas, cucumbers, squash, melons and gourds; fruits such as grapes, raspberries, blackberries, and other vining fruits and; flowers like clematis, climbing roses, sweet peas, morning glories, hybrid honeysuckles and other vining flowers. Trellis Netting, which is sometimes known as vegetable trellis and garden trellis netting, raises yields by increasing exposure to air and sunlight, thus reducing ground rot while optimizing garden space.
This material is sturdy, weatherproof, durable, reusable, and suitable for just about any garden project that involves plants that vine or climb. While its permanent strong nylon mesh supports extremely heavy crop loads, its soft, non-burning net protects tender vines, foliage, or fruits.
Any vegetable that tends to climb, like green beans or peas will grow beautifully on this sturdy, durable, nylon trellis. It is so adaptable and strong that you can even grow squash, cucumbers or melons, greatly decreasing the room that these particular plants need to grow; thereby increasing your harvest of other vegetables in your garden plot. You can even do away with those bulky tomato cages and grow your tomatoes within the confines of an a-frame trellis, or along an upright trellis, easily harvesting the fruit through its large openings in the netting.
Climbing flowers or vines also grow well on the Trellis Netting. Since the netting is fine and adaptable, you can grow your climbing plants just about anywhere. Just attach the Trellis Netting to the side of your house, a fence, or simply attach to the top of a pole set into the ground and witness the magic happen – the growing of the plants!
A little thought goes a long way to creating your own special and extraordinary uses for this amazing garden enhancement. You can plan for vines to grow in any number of shapes or even as a four-sided square around a sitting area. The possibilities are endless, but here are two of the most common ways to use Trellis Netting. First, for vertical planting, there is a need of two strong end supports which can be wood, vinyl or metal. A need of a strong wire that runs across the top which is weaved through the netting from one end support to the other is also needed. This will keep the top from sagging on heavy loads. When Trellis Netting is used for plants that grow vertically, it produces bigger, healthier and earlier harvest reduces damage from insects, rodents and ground-rot, and increases harvest from small garden spaces. For A-frame planting, there is a need of the same two supports and top wire either tall or short. After getting the drape over the top, stakes or our heavy-duty wire staples that hold the sides out is a must.
Furthermore, it is economical yet will last for years since Trellis Netting’s polypropylene UV stabilizers add for its longer life and it can be easily secured with staple gun or pinning nails.
