I ran across this article today. (I'd never heard of a tuteur before. It's basically a pyramid or trellis.)

This tuteur was built of branches, but I believe one could substitute milled 1" x 1" pieces for a more formal look. I'm thinking it also might be easier to place a block of wood inside the top and screw the tops of the branches into that rather than fastening them to each other. Has anyone built these?

I have made similar structures - only never knew it had a name. I simply collect fallen tree branches from our property and remove all side branches and leaves and do similarly to the tutorial.

Works great for morning glories, 4 oclocks, peas, you get the idea. I've never shellac-ed mine though - they all turn a greyish color and blend into the foliage. Many are several years old and going strong.

yep, 'tuteur' is just the French word for a trellis or plant support...my spiral tomato supports are called tuteurs, too. (Buy everything sounds better when you give it a French name, right?) Razz

I made a primitive version of those for my peas last year -- just four pieces of bamboo lashed together at the top with garden twine and resting on the surface of my boxes. I put more twine around the bottom to give the little peas something to grasp as they grew (like the slats on a ladder).

How to build a tuteur Empty bean supports

Post  ander217 1/12/2011, 7:08 pm

In my old row garden, I drove an iron pipe into the ground about a foot to make holes to set four branches deep into the ground in a square pattern. Then I gathered them together at the top and tied them to make a teepee for my pole beans to climb. I set the poles deep to keep them from blowing over when they were heavy with vines.

How does one anchor a tuteur in a SFG?

My SFG is in a very protected corner, between the back of the garage and the 6' brick wall between us and the neighbors, so mine just sat there...the wind can't really get to it, so it's not a huge issue for me.
