I am moving my garden into considerably less space and would like to
continue growing 2 hills of cucumber plants. My plan is to raise them
vertically to conserve space. I would appreciate advice about ways of doing
What we do is just to make a circle out of welded-wire
fencing (this is also sometimes called 'woven wire' fencing)
- you can hook the fencing to itself, if you know what I
mean. This isn't chicken-wire, but heavier fencing.
Then we plant the cukes around the outside of the circle of
fencing, and they grow up it. This works pretty well.
A few cukes will get stuck inside the fencing and you can't
get them out, but the method is so cheap and so easy to do
that I think it's worth losing a few cukes.
