Bamboo canes (rods) are quick, easy, and effective-- whether it is to palisade a plant against a wall, to allow it to rise from its pot, or to make a floral obelisk as a free-standing trellis in the garden. We sell both pre-made bamboo trellises and the components to make your own. The resilience of bamboo grids is determined by the ground they are in contact with and the moisture levels: when in contact with soil, bamboo canes will last 5 to 6 years; dry -- they'll last easily 15 years or more. You will find photo examples of bamboo trellises on this page, as well as general information.
Bamboo grids are particularly suited to smaller climbing plants, like clematis and all kinds of annual long-flowering climbers. A bamboo trellis can be used for any kind of plant if it is solid enough - especially potted plants on balconies and terraces.
