Making bamboo trellis

Continuing on my highly niche series of making things out of home grown bent bamboo I recently made an arch trellis for a rose to grow over our front door.

I’d been looking around various garden centres for an arch trellis but they all seemed to be quite big and suitable for sitting on top of fence panels. As I just wanted something over the doorway they would of looked far to bulky so I decided to make my own.

Having bent the bamboo in the same way I did for my mini-polytunnel I then screwed two planks of treated wood into the wall, one on each side of the doorway. I then just hammered staples around the bamboo to hold it between them. Now I just need to wait for the rose to grow a little more!
