Country Lore: Used TV Antenna Climbing Flowers Trellis

An old TV antenna makes a great trellis for climbing flowers.


| April/May 2010

When fastened to an unobtrusive thin steel post, an old TV antenna makes the perfect trellis to support rambling roses or other climbing flowers. And the protruding aluminum elements will be appreciated by native songbirds.
