We have a few new additions to our veggie patch here at our little farm including two raspberry plants and a boysenberry bush. So can you guess what that means? We had to create a DIY veggie trellis for our new little beauties to climb up on.
Luckily Nikki’s mum and step dad had some pretty wild bamboo trees that they recently cut down so we grabbed a few lengths as I thought this would be a nice, cheap and quick way to support our boysenberry.
First I cut four longer thick lengths for my uprights and buried them into the four corners of the garden bed and compacted the soil around them firmly to avoid too much movement.
Next I cut a heap of thinner lengths for my perimeters, which I attached the easiest way I could think of via good ole zippy ties. If you don’t like the idea of zip ties I also used a bit of tie wire which works just as well, you can use what ever you have lying around even some twine will do the trick nicely.
I put the perimeter lengths on at evenly spaced heights and can attached the growing bush with either vine clips which you can get from your nearest nursery or any type of twine you like.
So now we have to come up with another idea for our longer garden bed with our two raspberries, which has a post at each end. So we are asking you guys for some ideas as what to use to run between the two posts to hold our precious little berries.
Do you think we should use wire or more bamboo at each side of these two posts?
