Trellises are essential for vining plants, such as pole beans, peas, and some varieties of squashes or cucumbers. (Check the tag or the seed packet. Varieties that don’t need a trellis are usually called “bush” variety.)
Providing a trellis allows these plants room to grow up — and makes harvesting easier. There are plenty of store-bought versions, in just about any material (wood, plastic, or metal), but you can make a custom support system with just a little bit of effort. You can even find creative things to reuse!
