    Comments about : A-Frame Trellis:

    Hopefully will be strong enough to support the squash when they develop. Seems flimsy.
    There are notches on the frame to attach the recommended netting, but they didn't work too well- not sure if the netting will stay in place once it has to support the weight of the vegtables.

    Flimsy A-Frame

    About Me Master Gardener

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • Accurate Instructions
    • Lightweight

    Cons

    • Difficult To Use
    • Falls apart
    • Flimsy
    • Unstable

    Best Uses

      Comments about : A-Frame Trellis:

      I had excellent A-frames 10 years ago and had expected something useful & similar. Here I had difficulty keeping the middle triangle of legs from falling off. Leg ends were deep in soil, but plastic clips to join pieces were inadequate and the whole thing continued to fall down -even before anything was growing on it. When I tried staking the ends with tent pegs and string, the top piece would fall off. The poles are quite thin adding to the flimsiness. Took it down after a week. I have loved growing cucumbers, peas, flowers and small melons in slings on an A-frame in the past. Great picture in your catalog.

                  Comments about : A-Frame Trellis:

                  the A-frames are not very sturdy and the netting comes on a roll and is very difficult to stretch and secure over the A-frame poles. As the cucumbers are growing over the netting the netting is not strong enough to hold them up and the netting is stretching allowing the cucumbers to drop near/on the ground.
