There is a multitude of ways that plants adapt for best growth: climbing tendrils, partnering with other plants and turning to the sun—just to name a few! Permacultural farming or gardening uses this deep plant wisdom to build garden support structures that give space for plants to grow in ways that are best for them. Build your own wacky trellises, mold your own troughs and knot your own macramé plant hangers to create a support structure for your wise and growing plants.
