Tent with his own hands in the garden, in the greenhouse is easy to do. The support method of growing tomatoes or cucumbers, in the vertical plane are several advantages.
- Tapestry allows you to walk freely between the rows, without stepping, for example, on a lash of cucumbers.
- Planting tomatoes and cucumbers, when grown on a pole, is well blown and ventilated. Leaves do not seem to sweat, there are no water droplets on the bottom of the leaves. And this means that spores of peronosporosis or phytophtoras are harder to germinate, i.e.conditions for the occurrence of diseases are not created.
- Harvesting crops from plants growing on a trellis is much easier, more pleasant - everything is visible. Branches, shoots do not need to turn, turn.

What is the trellis
Tapestry is a specially made vertical support for garden or garden plants. It can be a construction of wooden or metal poles dug into the ground with metal, plastic netting and wire stretched between them. Instead of mesh or wire, you can fill or fasten wooden slats. Now in stores for gardeners, you can buy ready-made designs for growing plants on the trellis. For example, I have adapted the side walls of an old greenhouse for this purpose, having pulled a plastic trellis net from top to bottom and between them from above.
I offer you the experience of gardeners how to install a trellis in the open field for growing cucumbers and tomatoes.содерж to the contents ↑
The design of the trellis is a step-by-step instruction
Three columns are buried so that their height above the ground is three meters, and four meters apart, in one row. Bollards need to bury well, so as not to stagger. Two strips of four meters connect the top of the three columns. Fill more nails on top.
Then from the top down from the rail one meter we stretch the thick wire, fasten it with straps made of nails. On the extreme poles, we twist the ends of this wire around the post, fasten it with straps. So - through every meter. Three strained wires are obtained, and the bottom one should be 20 cm from the ground. The trellis frame is ready.
Now we take a soft aluminum wire or any wire, cut pieces of 4.5 meters, begin to braid from top to bottom. On the rail we fix the end of the wire, then twist on the transverse wires once each time so that the thin wire does not move, so do it to the ground. After 20 cm - the next wire is twisted on the cross again to the ground. Repeat this until the whole plane looks like a grid with the same cells.
Six such panels of the same length and height must be made. In autumn, on one side of the panel we dig a trench 60 cm wide, 50-60 cm deep. We lay the soil next to it. Then we do this: we take six parts of horse manure, six parts of mullein, one part of chicken, three parts of goat droppings, three parts of ash. Mix, fill the entire trench to the top, then cover with soil - it turns out the bed near the trellis.
During the winter period, the mixture will settle, rot. And in the spring we make a groove 10–15 cm deep throughout the bed, sowing cucumbers and tall tomatoes through the trellis. That is, one row - cucumbers, the second - tomatoes, the next - again cucumbers. So we must do, if we plant different varieties of tomatoes, so that they do not pereopylyatsya. When the seedlings grow, we leave, for example, 30 tomato bushes, 40 cucumber plants at a distance of 15-20 cm from each other. So - a row of cucumbers, a row of tomatoes, the next rows are also alternated to save varieties.
Care such: send plants up the trellis, water. In order not to loosen the beds, cover with shallow straw or dry leaves. From one bush of tomatoes, planted in this way, you can collect 1-1.5 buckets of good tomatoes. With a cucumber lash - 1 bucket of cucumbers. Vegetables grown on the trellis do not get sick, they are well ventilated, it is very convenient to collect them.содерж to content ↑
