As a small enterprise with limited growing space, trellising the hop vines proved to be a great option for steering the mass of foliage in a vertical direction. The space-hungry plants like to climb, and square trellises provided a place for the vines to get adequate sunshine while also adding a unique element to the landscape.

Galvanized steel cable from stock here at Lexco Cable was the ideal choice for giving them the flexibility to adapt the trellis configuration to their space while providing the strength to support the vines. We supplied them with bulk 1/8” and 3/16” aircraft cable and fasteners. They cut the wire rope cabling in-field to the exact lengths needed and secured it with heavy duty clips. Using galvanized cabling is economical and its flexibility is good for loop ends construction. This particular diameter is beneficial for growing, the plant vines easily grip onto the cable allowing ease of crawling/growth.
