trellis for morning glories

kris2001(6a - s.e.PA)May 22, 2007

What kind of a trellis can I use for morning glories, cardinal climber, nasturtiums. Is there a cheap, flexible, plastic string with squares in em big enough for vines to climb on?

If so where can I buy them , online? HD, WM?...

What do you guys use in balconies?

Last year I bought "trellis netting" and it was great for my morning glories. They grew from my bottom balcony up the trellis to my upper balcony (10 feet or so) and then kept going up the upper balcony's support.

Here's a picture of mine in action:

As you can see, I tied it to the top of a trellis that the vines had outgrown. The top of the netting was attached to my upper balcony.

I ordered mine online from Park Seeds. I don't know if stores have it or not. I also don't know the max height, but mind definitely grew more than 20 feet. They might have kept going if they had anything to grab onto!
