As I’m writing this, it is still HOT – like, “ain’t no way I’m going to out to weed” hot. Fortunately, I did force myself to go out and trellis the dahlias. Trellising and staking plants in my yard is always a major issue. Since my space is very limited, it always gets really hard to move around. This year, I’m attempting to use a weave between posts.
To trellis my dahlia plants, I simply used hot pink mason’s twine to essential “sandwich” the plants between two tight lines. This way, I can still shimmy up and down the rows to pick flowers and take photos.
