Garden Grids for Tall Trellises

Garden Grids for Tall Trellises
Clematis vines like to climb, so aim high. Our back garden is surrounded by a 6-foot fence. For years, I’ve tried to train clematis to grow up the fence with some success.

Miniature greenhouses make indoor gardening stylish and easy. A slim, unobtrusive T-5 fluorescent light fixture in the peak of the roof provides enough light for nearly any plant in the Wardian Case ($249).
