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.
Netting can be installed both vertically and horizontally depending on the need. Both are very simple, straightforward processes.
Vertical Trellis Installation:
To install netting vertically, insert support posts down your rows at approximately every 20'. 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 or clip your plants to the trellis netting as they grow and begin climbing. Some plants have tendrils that will tie themselves to the netting.
This style of installation is also used for vining crops in the vegetable garden or market farm. Vegetables and fruits like peas, cucumbers, and tomatoes all benefit from support as they grow.
Horizontal Trellis Installation:
Install garden trellis net horizontally for cut 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 that you will space your layers of trellis support at. The heights will depend on how tall your plants will grow. Typically this would be at 12", 24" and 36" from the ground.
After that step, attach the trellis netting to the cross bars by wrapping them around the crossbar and then tying string or zip ties around the net and crossbars to hold it in place.
Finally, unroll the lightweight polypropylene 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 cross bars every 20' apart and making the layer as long as you want. Then do the next layer the same way.
