Definitely spam with all those active links.
Not knowing everything about wicking beds, is the problem that you can’t pierce the bottom layer with a stake? We grow a lot of our herbs and stuff under and over arches of plastic garden mesh, which sometimes has wire inside and can therefore be shaped to form a structure. We also use chicken wire, re-inforced with wire. We do dig the wire into the ground to help hold it firmely, but perhaps you could make a base edge (so that you have a semi-circle of wire and a straight edge on the bottom) just to keep the rambling vines off the ground.
We also use a rusty old laundry rack (the sort with the foldy-outy sides) to grow vines on in the garden. Currently propping up a couple of cucumber vines, I can fold up the sides and get more height if needed.
None of these look especially elegant in the garden, but they serve their purpose. We also use an old reclaimed clothes line, and a couple of old Hills swing sets (acquired from friends once they became unsafe for children to play on) and they form nice strong arbours for larger vines to grow on.
I fantasise about a pretty garden using only teepees made from bamboo, but really, whatever works, hey?September 10, 2010 at 9:52 am #476083

On one bed I have made a frame from timber and cable ties.. looks a tad like the house Jack Built..not that flash.. will be making a trip to the tip shop on the lookout for old laundry airers .. I reckon a cage made from them would be really ace..
