Read details on growing cucumbers in the Vegetable Encyclopedia.

To assemble the Deluxe Cucumber Trellis, hold the two panels together and wind the wire coils onto the top of the panels, as shown. Space the coils evenly across the top. Set the trellis into an A-frame shape in your garden and push the bottom of each panel an inch or two into loosened soil to stabilize it.

Important: If you install the trellis in an especially windy area, we recommend anchoring it to the ground or to fence posts.

To prolong the life of your trellis, store it under cover at the end of the season. If the powder-coated finished is nicked, touch it up with exterior paint or polyurethane to prevent rust.

The Deluxe Cucumber Trellis can also provide shade for lettuce and other heat-sensitive plants early in the season or be used to extend your growing season. To protect tender crops from frost, place the empty trellis over them and cover it with garden fabric.
