Where the trellis used to be!

11 comments


All year, our old garden trellis was only being supported by the climbing plants attached to it, so sadly it had to go!
It used to be the home of roses, clematis and honeysuckle, a real delight in the spring and summer.

The garden looks quite bare and lost without it but John is keen to start the rebuilding process when the weather allows!

Just leaving the ‘Work in progress’ for a moment here is a little bit of colour at the end of November to make this slightly more interesting for you all!!

Back to the trellis!
A new trellis is taking shape but I am afraid this is as far as it has got.
I promise to show you the finished result, hopefully in the near future!

I shall end with one of the last remaining roses in the garden.
Watch this space for the end result!!!

Most trellis seem to rot quite quickly, it seems. But quite quick and easy to replace.
So much colour in the garden for this time of year.I found, Rudbeckia, Cranesbill geraniums and Campanula(Canterbury Bells) flowering in my front garden today.

Looks like a good trellis to me Wildrose.

It looks great - you must feel encouraged by results so far.
Hope your climbing plants will survive the changeover successfully.

I am not sure of the name of the rose, it is a rambler and has been in the garden for a long time.

Many thanks to all of you for your encouraging comments.

The new wood is sturdier than the last lot that we used, so hopefully it will remain in place for longer. Fingers crossed!

It's exciting to have something new - a new look. I'm sure the finished project will be a new focal point.

I love to follow works in progress, Wildrose. Thanks for sharing. I'm sure it'll look great when finished. I always dread changes in the garden when they are imposed on me, but when I bite the bullet, I usually find they are positive and interesting.
