This idea of growin peas in hanging basket is very interesting - I admit. I will try it apart from main veggie bed, where my Capucijner heirloom peas will grow.

I hadn't realised there were so many ways of supporting peas! I use plastic netting which lasts from year to year, or small branches stuck into the ground along the row.

Re your question on my blog about the Banyuls vines - the grape variety used for this wine is Grenache which is a small bush variety, very hardy and does not need any supports, unlike other varieties.

I don't grow peas any more (don't grow any veg except tomatoes and a few herbs) but I LOVE some of these trellises. I especially like the ones made of natural twigs (willow, perhaps) and bent into arches. There are infinite ideas, mostly only contained by time, space and money, of course.

I didn't grow peas up to now but I do sweet peas every year (except this Spring where everything was a bit different). And your ideas for different trellies are suitable for sweet peas too :-) ! Thank you for all the pictures you searched for and showed.

Those are some amazing home build trellises.

Great ideas. I'll note that with 'everyone' getting into the home produce gardens now -- structure makes it beautiful. That's why I really love the pergola archway that has a trellis going up the side. Beautiful!

We use good old hazel sticks both for our sweet and veg peas here in north Hampshire UK, Loved the ideas though. May use some myself.
