Can I grow Star Jasmine on this trellis?
Hello! I just purchased a star jasmine and I planned on making a trellis for it. I was going to use 3 cedar 2x4's and attach them to my wall vertically approx 16" apart. I was then going to attach lattice to the 2x4's creating a rectangle 4 feet wide and 8 feet tall. I will stain all of it with the same stain that I used on my cedar fence. My goal is to grow the jasmine in a more shaped form and keep it in the shape of the trellis. A family member just told me that a wooden trellis like that will rot and won't hold a jasmine and I will have to replace it in less than 2 years. Is that true? I really don't want to spend the money on a metal trellis. Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!
