Lashing a Bamboo Trellis

The most important part of making a bamboo trellis is holding the canes together

Length: 1:41
Produced By: Gary Junken

Watch as Michelle Gervais, Fine Gardening's technical editor, demonstrates her technique for holding the bamboo pieces together. Lashing is both strong and attractive, and all you need for each joint is a piece of waxed lashing cord 4 to 5 feet long.

Read Michelle's article Build a Bamboo Trellis for a materials list, advice on trellis design, and step-by-step instructions for cutting bamboo to size and trellis layout.
