Woodworking project reveal- trellis

If you still remember the trellises that i made for my passion fruit vine... This is another trellis that i made last weekend. I hope this new home makes it happy to bear me some fruits! This time!!

My (very headache) passion fruit vine has become so messy again that i had to prune it botak (bald) before i fit the trellis in.

The idea of making an arbor-like-trellis is actually come from One, she reminded me of how the vines in D-Paradise are beautifully grown where the fruits hung above our heads as we walk in the pathway. But of course, this milka-made trellis is not as pretty and strong as those you see in the market.

Sorry for the blur image, i was not allowed to snap any photo here- gotta be quick before being kicked out! Haha.

Happy Wednesday!

Milka my dear, This is what I need. My support for the passion fruit has been brought down by the storm last week. I have also cut them botak or they will grow all over the ground. You are really clever. Fyi, I've posted the photo of passion fruit vine in D' Paradise last year. http://onenezz.blogspot.com/2010/07/visit-to-d-paradise-part-2.html

Rebecca: Thank you but how long can this trellis stand is a question haha.

One: Yep, i referred that (it is actually link in my post here). Thanks for inspiring me! Hehe.

The trellis looks great and I hope it works like you want it to. Take time to train your plant to go where you want it to and it will have fruit hanging for you to pick.

Food so delicious! said...

I am most impressed!!! I do hope your passion fruit will grow nicely over your trellis. You have a beautiful home I must say..

it's wonderful to have such big compound which gives you ample space to do & put up your own trellis. so fun!

Whoa nice job you did. I have never attempted one myself but you did a great job.

Did get out and get a couple pictures today before our nasty snow hits again today and I'm hoping the last for the season.

Dear all, thanks for liking this trellis. Using thin woods (becourse i only have a small saw): will not last long. I hope for 2 years though, better than none :)

It looks very pretty and functional! I sneak pictures too. Ha ha.

Hey Milka, I prefer your trellis than the one in store because it is made by you. Can you make me one (bodek) ;-).My very tiny passionfruit is growing beside my only garden arch.

milka said...

Diana: I still prefer the one your hb bought for you in the market. Only $10 and is made of steel. Did you get another one the next trip you went? Passion fruit is one of the headache plants in my yard, too fast growing!

My Treasure said...

milka, good job! i like your strong will..my dear, can you tell me where to get those seed..

milka said...

My Treasure: You mean the passion fruit seeds? You can buy fruit (pink or yellow) from the fruit shop and then save up the seeds. As for me, i bought the whole plant from the nursery.
