Bamboo Wigwam for Climbing Plants

A handy gadget I've created is based on something I once saw in a catalog that joined bamboo poles together at the top to create a wigwam for vine plants. The company wanted almost $7.00 for a pair so I made my own by using margarine tub tops.

I punched holes with a single hole puncher around the edge of the top. Depending on what kind of vining plant I use and how many stakes are needed, I punch 3 to 5 holes. Then slip the hole-punched tub top over one end of each of the stakes and spread them out to create the wigwam.

Push the bottom ends into the soil a couple inches to secure them. Depending on how thick your stakes are, you may have to enlarge the hole a bit by cutting 3 or four small slits around the punched hole.

"You have pictures?"

Yep, but not with anything growing on it yet...too early.
