How To Grow Cucumbers On A Trellis - Small Space Gardening

Simple way to keeping vining cucumber plants contained in a small garden.
Buy an inexpensive trellis at your local garden center and when the cucumber plants begin to vine, start training them to grow up the trellis.
I tuck the leaves behind or around the trellis, and before you know it the tendrils have grabbed onto the trellis and secure the plant in place!

    @Marcia Wisdom You don't have bees to pollinate your cucs. You need to hand pollinate the female flowers yourself, it's easy and sounds like the only way you'll get the fruit to set. Either google or check out for hand pollinating cucumbers. I would post a link, but I can't figure out how. The youtube videos are easy to watch and there are several.

    Your idea is incredible. It is an implausible piece of art you have shared. It is easy to make and it certainly gives your garden, balcony or even your backyard a fresh look with a modern touch. Climbing plants are a great way for covering wall, fence and trellis that not only enhance the beauty of your yard but also acts as a safety barrier. Nice gardening.
