Building a pea support

It is too cold for much today. Last year my pea support collapsed so I’ve decided to make sure this doesn’t happen again….

My pea support

I’ve used 9 bamboo canes and chicken wire to create a support in one of the raised beds. I’ve deliberately built it with only one side and at an angle as I will only have a few plants. All the canes are 20 to 30 cm in the ground.

Side view

I built a wire frame by weaving bamboo canes through a rectangle of chicken wire, tying the corners together with string and placing this frame over the bamboo support. The base of the frame is buried 10cm in to the ground.

Hoping for better success this year!

Still lots to do!
