Morning glories are one of a number of climbing plants that quickly grow up and up if given a pole or trellis to climb. If you have the room, here is how to build a large flower-covered teepee — the perfect hideaway for summer games and adventures with friends. This project takes two weeks to complete.
- sand or sticks
- garden shovel
- morning glory seeds (soaked overnight)
- hazel beanpoles and dried-out branches
- green wire or twine
- large stones
- clear plastic bottles or containers
- watering can
- liquid fertilizer
1. Plan Out the Base of the Teepee
Mark out the base of the teepee using sand or sticks.
2. Dig Holes
Dig a large, deep hole every 1 foot (30 cm) around the marked line.
3. Add Beanpoles
Place a beanpole into each hole and twist it into the ground. You can also push a large stone against it to stop the pole from wobbling.
