Trellis education

Name for the most common and oldest vine training for grapes. It was already used by the Romans in ancient times. Crop plants (fruit, roses, grapevines) are traditionally attached to the mostly lattice-like construction. As grapevines are climbing plants, they can also climb freely up a wall. However, trellises made of wooden frames or wire frames are necessary to achieve the desired growth form. The shoots are attached (fastened) to these, forming a vertical wall of foliage (trellis) around 20 to 30 cm thick. This creates a hedge-like appearance. There should be a maximum of 15 shoots per linear metre to avoid compaction.
