How to Build a Trellis for Gourds
Since gourds can grow to be fairly large and heavy, trellises are going to be used during the growing period. Here, see how to build two trellises.
Buy three bamboo poles (available at garden centers) of the same length -- at least 6 feet long. Wrap wire around one of the poles, approximately 4 inches from the top.
Line the second pole up next to the first. Wrap/weave wire around both.
Lay the third pole next to the second and attach in same way (Image 1). Twist, secure and cut wire (Image 2). Stand the trellis up like a tripod, spreading out the legs.
