Create Climbing Surfaces

Use string to wrap string around the sides for plants to climb.  The pattern isn’t too particular, you just want places for the plants to hang on.

 

“Plant” Rebar

We don’t want our little plants falling over, so pound the rebar pieces into the ground to anchor the PVC structure.  Check as you go to be sure the rebar is placed so the PVC pipes will fit on them.  I then used a rubber mallet to hammer the top corners of the structure to get it over the rebar and into the ground a bit.

Help plants climb

If your plants are already growing, find the tendrils and help string them up the tower.  I did green beans, which are great for climbing because their stems really grab them string.  If the plants aren’t tall enough to reach yet, keep an eye on them as they grow and help them find places as they get bigger.
