I have a tree that has been knocked over, and is still hung up on others. I've read that they like acid soil and that the soil is.

I would love to do something with it so I am not looking out at a half fallen tree all the time!!!

Koff to PM you.

I have three of them in my perennial bed now, all of them 'Homemade'!
These were made out of steel rods some of which were flat and the other one is rounded and welded together. I use them for Clematis and climbing roses.
I find it gives the flowerbed a more natural look with different areas to focus on!
The largest one is about 3 1/2 feet wide at the base on all four sides and it is narrower at the top. He mounted a red arrow on the top and that summer the clematis completely engulfed it.
The smaller one is more rounded in shape and smaller in size.

This one is a lot smaller and more rounded on the top and narrower on the sides as well.

This is my third one that I have is a arbor made with more steel rods and white lattice.
On one side I have William Baffin Climbing Rose and the other side is Nelly Moser clematis.
These are all made with material that is easy to find and homemade besides when on a gardening budget! :lol:

OMG I've got a major case of 'Climatis Envy'.

Mine are both gone now :cry: and I'm so jealous.
