For our Let’s Garden Workshop on Garden Architecturals, we focused on the trellis! A trellis is an architectural structure, usually made from an open framework or lattice of interwoven or intersecting pieces of wood, bamboo or metal that is normally made to support and display climbing plants and we have quite the selection of them at Palladio Garden.
Here’s some inspiration that led us to choose confederate jasmine, also known as star jasmine, to wrap around our trellis. Beyond the beautiful ever green foliage and white flowers that spout a popular fragrance, the jasmine is fast-growing and low maintenance. Jasmine starts out growing slow for a year and then takes off and it flowers from April – June depending on the climate.
Choosing the right size trellis
Because of the big size of the jasmine we purchased, we went with one of our larger sizes of our simple trellis designs. We chose the one on the right in this photo below.
Untangling the branches
It is MUCH easier to twist the branch around the trellis after we cut off the ties and unwrapped the branches from each other. Jasmine are resilient and bendy so don’t be afraid to use some muscles to get them untangled. Whatever plant you are using, if you are planting it after some growth this will make the next step easier. Otherwise if you start a climbing plant with new seeds make sure to guide the new growth by positioning branches in varying positions along a trellis.
Placing the trellis
Since we planted the jasmine indoors, we chose one of our gorgeous glazed pots to plant the jasmine. From there we tucked the legs of the trellis into the pot and made sure it fit just right before intertwining the branches into the trellis. You can also stick the trellis legs right into the ground outside. Jasmine is great for covering up eyesores like sheds or making a make-shift fence but you will need additional support because it will not attach to walls without something to latch on to.
Pitching branches back and forth
We rolled up our sleeves for this step! It took some maneuvering to start the branch on the inner side of the trellis so we started some branches from the outside too. We wove the branches all around in no particular pattern. Our goal was to fill up the trellis and make it look full. One branch could wrap around all four sides of the bottom and another branch could make its way up to the top only on one side. Feel free to play around with it and know that it will continue to fill out bare spots once it grows.
Water and sun
If you know Jasmine, you know it craves sun. If you have your trellis indoors, place it near a window with direct sunlight or in front of a curtain in the hot summer months for filtered sun. It can withstand drought but make sure it gets plenty of nutrients and water so it stays healthy and strong. You can cut back growth after it flowers to keep growth under control. Ta-da! You have a beautiful vine growing in your garden now.
StyleBlueprint wrote an article about one of our popular designers here at Palladio Home & Garden. It reads:
“Kevin Barnard and Tim Deck have been working together to create unique and upscale interior designs at reasonable prices since 2014. Barnard & Deck was built on the belief that when brought together, visual interest, purpose and personality will create a great design. Striving to bring each client’s personality into their work, Kevin and Tim start the process with emotion-based questions, asking how the client currently feels or would like to feel in their space. From there, mixed-use of old and new, modern and traditional aspects are brought in to each project, combining styles that otherwise may not have been envisioned. At the storefront of Barnard & Deck, expect to find interior design pieces, such as mirrors, lighting, upholstery, bedding and home accents, which are arranged in vignettes to provide visitors with ideas on how to use pieces in their own home. Barnard & Deck provides a tastefully unique take on interior design!”
Palladio Home & Garden is proud to carry Barnard & Deck in our stores!
Palladio Garden’s Cash Williams shows us how to make our own container gardens using a container, soil, and some colorful flowers from your local garden center. In six easy steps, you’ll be able to show off your green thumb and add some greenery to your garden. The best part of a container garden is you can place them anywhere inside or outside, you can hang them on your fence, or brighten up your patio or balcony, you don’t even need a patch of earth to start!
See below for the six steps to make your own container garden.
Step 1: Gather your supplies: a container with holes at the bottom (Palladio has some great and colorful choices!), soil full of nutrients ( Miracle Grow works), and a variety of short, tall, full and cascading flowers or herbs. If your container is deep, you can save some soil by using Styrofoam at the bottom. And if you want to make sure soil doesn’t spill out of the bottom hole, use a layer of paper towel or newspaper!
Step 2: Pick your center piece. We went with a bright pink Geranium but you could also try other warm-weather annuals that bloom all summer.
Step 3: Dig a hole finger-depth deep in the center of your container. You can use a small garden shovel but don’t be afraid to roll up your sleeves and use your hands!
Step 4: Plant your center piece and choose two new plants to go right beside it. (We went with Pink Splash because they’ll grow big and have great foliage to fill up the container.)
Step 5: Work your way around the container alternating colors and heights. We like to keep the arrangement symmetrical so when flowers grow, you will see achieve a balanced design. For color we used petunias, for plants that spill over we used Verbena, and for height we used Lobelia.
Step 6: Place your container in a spot that needs some colorful plant life and water it according to how much sun it’s getting and what the plants need. (Sometimes it’s easy to place the container in it’s resting spot before planting because it can get heavy. But it will get messy so choose what works best for you.) Be sure to feed and water your container garden regularly and keep it looking fresh.
