I had a big tree removed a few weeks ago which has left quite a gap. (The bulk of the tree had fallen a few years ago, I though ti was leaving the trunk but decided it was dangerous and best removed).
Today I found / remembered I had planted a solanum glasnevin to climb up it. Now it has started it's growth spurt and I need suggestions what will be strong enough to support it?
It is near to a fence, but I don't think that will hold it.
There are conifers nearby ( 60-90cm away each side) which I expect it will reach in time, so maybe a temporary measure until it gets there? How would it affect clipping/pruning the conifers?
There is a newly planted Amelanchier in front of it, would this work?
Would an arch or trellis be better, if so any suggestions which are strong enough?
