    Your designs are amazing. Would the Malus loensis need very much sun as there will be very little sun on the side in question.
    Are you sure you wouldn't like a home stay and garden consult in Spokane. My husband has spent time in Brisbane and loved it!

    Lovely espalier. Love the Star Jasmine but it didn’t survive the winter. I live in New Jersey, hardiness zone 6 though plant calls for a warmer 7.
    Wondering if you or anyone can suggest a similar alternative. Wall is wired and ready to go.
    Many thanks and I am grateful for any replies.

    Thanks, it looks like you've got 3 shades?!? What about dark trim? Is this a good colour for fence paling?

    The wires and star jasmine are very popular. I try not to follow these trends however in this case it really suited the home.

    Hello everyone,

    I am a casting Producer at Leopard films. I thought I would reach out to let you know about the exciting new spin-off show that we have in production here at House Hunters International. The new show is called House Hunters International: Renovation and we are looking for expats who have recently bought fabulous properties and are about to embark on some imminent renovations. Ideally they should be outgoing and fun, aged under 45 and have bought a property within the last few years.

    We are looking to film this Summer and for the renovation projects to be finished by end of November so perhaps a new kitchen, a small extension etc. We have some budget that would go towards finishing the project which makes it a little more interesting!

    Please do get in touch if you have any contacts for people who may be interested in the show.

    Best wishes,


    Michelle James

    A variety of fasteners and house hold wire could be used, however I always use stainless steel cable and stainless steel fittings.
    Anything else will rust over time, leaving the wall vacant as it all falls to the ground.
    Go to a ships chandlery and ask to see the cable and associated fittings used in yachts.
    Stainless steel cable can be pulled very tight to achieve the desired look.
    You will need :
    Eyelet screws to anchor into the wall.
    Next is working out your pattern and then measuring and marking out for drill holes for the screw eyes.

    You now have to attach the cable to the starting screw eye.
    Then it's a matter of threading your cable through the eyelets until you reach an end point. Back and forth say three times is enough. After that the loose end has to be attached to a turnbuckle. It then hooks onto the closed in line turn buckle. Clamp cable to the turn buckle, cut off excess cable and tighten cable by turning the turn buckle.
    Repeat for each row or shape you want to achieve.

    Have fun,

    Andrew Renn

    Star jasmine. Trachylospernum jasminoides

4. Wall pattern. Any twining vine can wrap itself around metal cables arranged in a pattern to produce an attractive look. Here, confederate jasmine (Trachelospermum jasminoides) twines itself around metal cables on a Melbourne home’s wall to create a crisscrossing diamond pattern. To achieve this effect, the cable size has to be small enough in relation to the size of the twining stems. The vines have to be initially guided directly onto these cables so they grow correctly. Once established in the pattern, the twining vine stems will continue to wrap around the cables. Prune regularly to keep the vine dense with foliage and the pattern visible.Care and Training for a Vine-Covered Home

Vines were trained in meticulous patterns in the formal gardens of 17th-century Europe.

Margie Grace - Grace Design Associates added this to California Gardener's August ChecklistJul 23, 2012

Train vines. This is the season of rapid growth. Train vines on support structures while they're still manageable. Ask anyone who’s ever had a rambunctious vine get out of hand and you’ll appreciate the value of doing this task early and often.

Vine that wrap around can make attractive patterns. Trim to keep vine leefing dense.
