chestnut posts for roses

Chestnut posts and roses

chestnut posts for rosesThese are chestnuts posts. They’re about 3m long. I’ve collected them from Ben Law, down in Surrey, and I’m putting them up as rose-posts for a client who wants a sturdy, natural framework for climbing plants. They could be honeysuckle-posts or clematis-posts, maybe?

I’ll post (ha ha) some more pictures when the plants go in.

I like working with natural structures. Oak posts and oak pergolas are okay, but as these are chestnut, they’ll last much longer in the ground. It’s important to think about that. If you’re investing in a garden that’s going to last, you want to use the right materials for the job.
