Not only are trellises an attractive addition to your garden or other outdoor space; they can also result in much healthier plants. Using a trellis for your plants means that they receive more sunlight than those, which were planted in the ground. This will allow those plants that thrive in full sun to grow faster, as there is less competition for sunlight than there would be on the ground level. In addition, plants grown on a trellis receive better air circulation, which drastically reduces their chances of contracting potentially fatal fungal disease. Finally, trellises can prevent produce from rotting and attack by slugs and rodents.
