Mark Rayner comes up with a quick and easy frame for climbing plants.You will need: Seven 19mm x 19mm x 1.8m garden stakes, tape measure, pencil, set square, saw, drill with 2mm drill bit, exterior PVA glue, 30mm x 2.5mm galvanised clouts and a paintbrush. Resene Quick Dry waterborne primer undercoat and Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Bright Red.
Top tip: If you plan to grow a rose on your climber support, make the horizontal bars 50% longer so you can spread the ‘fan’ wider or add additional sections on the outside of your ‘fan’. This will help increase the number of blooms your rose produces.
Measure across the top and bottom of the fan shape and measure and mark crosspieces to fit (ours measured about 700mm and 120mm).
Position the top crosspiece, as shown. Use the set square to ensure it’s at 90° to the central vertical stake.
Measure, mark and fix the three remaining crosspieces, ensuring they are evenly spaced. Allow glue to dry.
