Creating a Garden Trellis

with Hawthorn Hollow’s Kyle Woller and Allison Garren
Trellising has been a longstanding garden tradition for both function and beauty. From the living corn stalk trellises used in a Three Sisters Garden wIMG_4215ith squash and pole beans, to the cold metal tomato cages used in many of today’s gardens, the trellis is an essential garden structure for healthy plants that also brings aesthetic beauty to your landscape. Let your creative side run wild with willow branches and jute twine to design and construct your own custom garden trellis to incorporate into your garden at home. Trellis making materials and tools are provided as part of the registration fee for each participant to design and build their own garden trellis. To Register, please contact agarren@hawthornhollow.org or call at (262) 552-8196.

Supplies Provided: Trellis making materials and tools are provided as part of the registration fee for each participant to design and build their own garden trellis. Trellis designs may vary by participant so enough trellis making material is provided for at least one large trellis or a number of small trellises depending on your preference.
