For healthier plants, an attractive landscape background, and space management,is the way to go, says Natasha McCrary, the owner and operator of . "Tomato cages, wire fencing, bamboo stakes, and even strong sticks from your yard can be used to create a functional trellis," she says. "One of the most effective trellises used at our farm is Hortonova netting attached vertically to metal T-posts."
When selecting trellising materials, McCrary suggests taking the plant's weight into consideration. "You would not use the samethat you would use for sweet peas or pole beans," she explains. Once you've settled on a structure, be mindful of how it will impact the other plants in your garden.

Knowing how they grow will let you know what kind of support they need: "Plants with tendrils are only able to grab on to supports that are about the thickness of a pencil or less, so you need a trellis with skinny supports—or you can add string or a plastic mesh (like what you would use for deer netting) net on a trellis."
Varieties that wind themselves can usually grab, notes Schanen, but they might need some help getting started. "Always tie in plants with something soft—twine, bits of pantyhose, or plant ties made for the purpose—and leave room for the plant to grow and move within the tie," she adds.
