Answer: You can grow many members of the squash family on trellises--cucumbers, melons, various squash, and gourds, for example. They are natural climbers and you can easily train them up on a sturdy trellis. For large-fruited plants like melons and large squash, you will need to support developing fruit to keep it from pulling the vines down. One way to do this is to create a fabric sling, cradle the fruit in it, and secure it directly to the trellis.<br><br>You can also grow tomatoes (indeterminate types) and climbing peas on a trellis.
