Grape Trellis Fittings

Dateline: 16 May 2014

Grape Trellis T-Connectors, from Planet Whizbang

"I Just wanted to let you know how well your tee post fittings worked on my grape vine trellis. Our soil is really rocky, and digging in end posts and brace posts would have been a real challenge.  So thanks for your cool invention!  It saved me (and my back!) a ton of time and digging." 
—Bob L. (Colorado)

That positive feedback from Bob in Colorado came in a few days ago. The fittings I developed and make here in my home workshop are nothing fancy, but they get the job done remarkably well. If you want to grow grapes, (and every homestead should have some grapes) you need a good trellis structure.  My trellis fittings allow you to make a solid, freestanding grape trellis without a lot of trouble.

Specifications for making your own grape trellis fittings are in my Planet Whizbang Idea Book For Gardeners (page 31 to 33). Or, like Bob, you can simply buy them already made from me. Click Here For Full Details.

P.S.— The fittings can also be utilized to make espalier fruit tree frames.
