Here's a fun weekend project that will prove to be a great help should you be growing certain vegetables
1 A row of wigwams, fixed together with a long pole makes an ideal support for runner beans.
2 Tie bundles of willow rods together and form into a tent shape to make an ideal support for clematis.
3 Create semi-circular supports by putting both ends of pliable stems in the ground. This is a great idea for supporting low growing plants.
4 This rustic arched pergola for scented climbing roses is made from hazel poles topped with birch stems.
5 Artistically plaited into a pyramid, willow provides a robust support for cucumbers. The ripe cucumbers are then easy to see and harvest.
6 Wind strong twine several times round the joints of the frame and knot firmly for a secure hold.
