umbrella trellis for climbing rose
I found a nice discussion of the J & P umbrella trellis for climbing roses but it is over a year old. I just ordered the largest of these for my New Dawn which I have struggled to train on a small picket fence (it just does not like horizontal). The price was right, but the discussion indicates it is a very flimsy structure. I am wondering if I can get someone to help me put a post in the ground and attach it to that. Has anyone done that? One of the posters said after her J&P umbrella trellis fell over in the wind, she tied it to a fence. Hmmm. Can I just start with it next to a post, or put the post up the middle of it? I welcome suggestions. BTW I checked out the garden artisans and whoa a totally different price range, well beyond my reach.
