Looks beautiful.  Where do you get the tree nets from?

Thanks guys! Very kind of you.

The shade cloth is just “bulk shade cloth” 50%, from Greenhouse Megastore.com.
I use various cheap materials like electrical conduit to form the frames/support and use zip ties to attach it.

Hope that helps!

I have a question about pawpaws - I am running out of room, and was wondering if I can braid my three pawpaw seedlings together and plant them in one hole?

Planting pawpaws in the same hole has been done, from what I’ve heard. I think The reviews are mixed I’d say.
I actually have 3 pairs of pawpaws growing about 8 inches apart. These are from seeds I planted directly in the ground. Though it’s not much help to your question because they’re only in their second summer.  ::)

I would say if the alternative is not planting them at all, I would do it. Of course it will help greatly with pollination.

Now, what precisely do you mean by weaving?
