I have (hopefully not fruitlessly :smiley:) bought a kiwi issai, but the place I was going to put it is probably not sheltered enough. The other place in the garden doesn't have a wall to attach things to - any advice on the best standalone structure?

    What about those metal pyramids for plants?
    It would look lovely climbing up those. Or fix a trellis between two posts.
    Buy one of those cheap metal arches. I had one for jasmin for decades before i couldn't mend it any longer

    Some great ideas, thank you! :smile: I think I'm leaning towards the trellis between post idea, I quite like the idea of sinking the posts into concrete blocks and carrying on the theme through the garden with lights strung from them

    Just got a pair of vines myself. Have constructed an arbor some 4m x 4m, 2.4m high. Hopefully, it will be enough space for one of the vines. The second one, I'm going to plant along a wooden fence.
    The posts I used are set into metal ground spikes, so hopefully, they won't rot at the base like they would if set in to concrete.

    Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.
