In addition to vining flowers, cucumbers, melons, squash, and snap peas all benefit from climbing up structures such as fencing, poles, or trellises. Ornamentals are brought quickly to our eye level, and fruit can hang down rather than lay on the ground which keeps damage to a minimum. Consider growing a trellis structure with sunflowers, corn, or tall amaranths too!
