I love morning glories. They are great way to disguise the ugly chainlink fence around my backyard. Much as I dislike it, I’ve never considered removing it. Disposing of it would be prohibitively expensive. New Jersey is a small state with a large landfill problem. So I grow morning glory vines instead.
I also grow them on trellises. I bought this one at Target. I fell in love with little suncatcher.
Can you see the problem? There are just not enough “legs” for the vines to climb. Then I had a brainstorm. I could add string to provide more surfaces for them to climb. When I saw that Skippy was using the same technique in his garden, I knew I was on to something.
I added string to all three trellises. The white string does not show up well against the white shed so I’m only posting the one picture. I can’t wait for August to see how well my idea works out.
