A few weeks ago, someone asked for the title of the Monty Don video bending metal rods to make plant supports.  I did check it out but didn't have any need for them.  However, with all the strong winds and lashing rain and plants having broken free of bamboo canes and string I have decided to prepare my self for next summer - just to try and stop me from staring out the kitchen window at the chaos the weather has created this year.  Can you please let me have details of the video please.

thank you sotongeoff, I have watched the video twice and made notes in two gardening books so, hopefully, will not be having tall plants growing horizontally in my garden next year.

This is another form of supports. You can also use soft, bendy plastic pipes (plumbers) or casing for electric wires....take a wander around a DIY store. I have used them successfully for years to train ramblers and climbers etc.
