try these instructions. Usually you tie to wires not up a trellis. Are you growing in a greenhouse or outside? where do you live?(county or country would give us a clue.)

I filled two of them two years ago, they rotted down to half in one year , so I tipped them both into one, and damped them down again. I put a bit of chicken wire on the top to stop them blowing around .
