Every grower has two goals when planting their garden: high-yields and high-quality. But what is the point, if your plants cannot support the weight of the yields? This is where garden trellis comes in.
Trellis netting is used in gardens and grow rooms to provide additional support to plants, helping them stay upright. Implementing trellis nets can increase vertical yields significantly, by allowing the plant to grow taller and thus increasing the number of bud sites. Horizontal yields will also increase, as the system encourages a wider canopy. These nets can also be used as a from of pest control against rodents, pests, and ground-rot.
Setting up a trellis system
Before touching any netting, you need to form a free-standing frame around the plants you wish to train, using either PVC or stakes. Then, you will attach the trellis net across the frame, over the plants. As the plants grow towards the grow lights, they will push through the netting, and this process creates an incredibly wide canopy! If you wish, a second layer of trellis can be implemented higher up to “lock” stems in place, keeping them secure. It is important to prune throughout vegetative growth, especially below the trellis.
Trellising allows growers to get the most out of their plants with the space they have. Whether you are looking for horizontal trellis to help support heavy weight, or vertical trellis to promote tall, robust growth, we have it here at Hydrobuilder. We also carry any clips and labels you may need to create an efficient trellis system in your garden.
