Beans are able to form dense hedges, so it needs a solid support. The ideal option is a double row of poles, the tops of which are paired together in the form of the letter A and connected by a longitudinal bar laid in a fork between the upper ends. The length of the poles should be at least 3.5 meters, since for stability they will have to be thoroughly immersed in the ground. The result is a stable design that the beans will braid to the very top.

Such a solid construction is not needed for peas - dry, but not brittle branches about a meter long will do. They are installed in the ground with a pitch of 0.5 meters from each other and fasten the tops A-shaped. Support will be especially useful for sugar late-ripening varieties of peas.

A-shaped trellises will be especially good in windy terrain. They are stable, hold plants well and do not allow them to “tremble” strongly in the wind. In freezing, this design can be easily and quickly draped with covering material.

Pumpkin Arch

Pumpkin grown on arches or high arches looks unusual and in terms of decorativeness can make a worthy competition to the more familiar vines. Supports are installed both individually and in groups, collecting spectacular live tunnels from them.

Pumpkins love sunny places, so they will like the vertical way of growing. To whip tightly wrapped around the support and form a dense curtain, 2-3 seedlings are planted at the foot of the arch on both sides. When a plant forms 2-3 true leaves, it is tied to an arch.

Plants can be planted in the form of seedlings, then the result does not have to wait long. For vertical cultivation, both decorative and edible varieties of pumpkins, for example various varieties of nutmeg pumpkins, are suitable.

2 USEFUL TIPS FOR STRUCTURE OF SUPPORTS

1. Use the plant material at your disposal - rods, branches, poles. They will make original supports that will not only fulfill their practical purpose, but will also delight the eye.

2. Since climbing, creeping and climbing plants are predominantly sun- and heat-loving, to install the supports should choose a sunny, sheltered from the wind area.

Bean Pyramid

The pyramid entwined with beans creates an interesting, unusual effect on flat beds. Pyramids made of wood or metal are especially beautiful. Such designs often serve as a decoration of the garden. But there are simpler ways to create a pyramidal support.

To do this, take 4-8 poles, arrange them in a circle at a distance of at least 60 cm from each other, and the tops are tightly connected with wire. The hut will take up quite a bit of space, but it will be very stable.

A light pyramid can be assembled from willow rods by tying their tops together and for strength braiding the walls with a thin rod in the manner of a basket. The pyramids of poles and vines are less noticeable than special decorative coasters, and do not distract attention from the plant.
