This durable, lightweight polypropylene trellis netting is perfect for supporting vegetables, climbing flowers, and tall vines, allowing more airflow and sunlight to reach the plants. This space-saving 6" mesh net is available in 3', 4', 6' widths. Get better yields and raise healthier plants using this UV-stabilized, chemical-resistant trellis netting. You can also use this trellis net horizontally for long-stem flowers such as dahlias, zinnias, and the like. Keep peas and pole beans supported with horizontal netting. Reduce blemishes on fruit and grow straighter flower stems with supportive trellis netting.
Note: It is imperative to keep the netting taut as birds can become entangled in the loose mesh.
To install netting vertically, insert support posts down your rows at approximately every 2'. Next, attach the net to the support posts using string or twine. We suggest that you snake a support cable such as metal wire or other strong cord or string through the netting at the top to support the net. Tie your plants to the trellis netting as they grow.
Install garden trellis net horizontally for flowers, use several layers close together. First, start by putting four wood or metal supports into the ground. Install the first two posts at equal width with your netting (i.e. 3' apart, 4' apart, 6' apart). The second set of posts should be installed 6'-20' wider. The height of the posts would depend on what you are growing.
Next, screw or bolt wooden cross bars between posts 1 and 2, and between posts 3 and 4 at the different heights, you will space your layers of trellis support. The heights will depend on how tall your plants grow.
After that step, attach your netting to the cross bars by wrapping them around the crossbar and then tying string or zip ties around the net and crossbar to hold in place.
Finally, unroll the trellis support netting and attach it to the cross bars between posts 3 and 4. You can continue the row by putting support posts and crossbars every 20' apart and making the layer as long as you want. Then do the next layer the same way.
