to creosote or not on trellis
We have recently purchased some trellis to grow climbing plants up. My husband has just covered one side with creosote and I am wondering if the plants will like it. So far he has only done one side of two sheets of trellis.
Creosote has a high toxicity level and will give off fumes especially on a hot summer"s day and you don"t want to inhale these fumes. Plants won"t like it either, because they absorb chemicals just as we do. The best timber to use in the garden to make a trellis or garden bed is mahogany. If this is too expensive, use untreated hard wood. I hope I have been of some help. Good luck.
