Flexible Clematis Support

Deer fencing makes an excellent support for clematis.

For many years, I’ve tried to grow clematis on my Garden Starter Greenhouse. I tried string and other techniques, but this year’s solution has proved to be the best so far. I used a 4-foot-wide piece of Heavy-Duty Deer Fence, and it works like a charm.

I was able to run the fencing from the base of the plant all the way to the peak of the roof—plenty of room for my vigorous Cardinal Wyszynski clematis. What’s more, the inconspicuous, black netting is loose enough to allow the greenhouse roof vent to open and close. It’s easy to cut with a scissors and I can anchor the base with Earth Staples. At the end of the season, it’s easy to remove and pack away for another year.
