Trumpet Vine - Mary706 - 05-11-2007

Need something sturdy enough to stake up my trumpet vine. Anyone have any ideas? I have tried wrought iron stakes, poles. I keep it trimmed back even so it gets heavy and out of control.

How about training them on a trellis or an arbor? If you like working with your hands, You can even make your own trellis. You can buy 2"x 2" wood, any length you want, fix them on wooden posts 8 ft. high. Home depot or any other lumber place would cut them for you. I prefer wood to iron. Iron gets hot in summer, cold in winter. Buy nails and fix the trellis. It is not difficult to do it all
