    Mine is growing up and over the carport but it is shadowed by the giant clumping bamboo and it limits the sunshine and accessibility. As a renter I can't pull out the bamboo but I have taken some 4ft cuttings that have already fruited and am potting them up. I can then take them with when I go! 😎

    Thank you for doing this video. I've just bought a Dragon fruit and haven't ever grown anything like it. Now I know what to do to have a happy plant!

    Put some wood chips (not mulch) around 3 feet from the trunk , the wood chips balance your  H.P. the soil , watch the videos from "back to Eden garden"

    That is an interesting way of making the trellis. I think it will help support not only dragon fruits but other plants as well! Cheers mate!

    Hi Mark, Nice job it was tricky but turns out great, I'm using zip ties to hold my satellite dish in place they are now in second year and still thee so hopefully yours will last long as well.

    I like zip ties too. Very interesting plant must be ground cover in the wild.

    Thinking about it we could use that trellis for fruit bushes in the UK as well

    are those cattle panels you cut down or are they specially made for gardening? I have several cattle panels here that I use in the garden ,some are 12 feet and one or two are 16 feet. they really work good for tomatoes pole beans and even cucumbers so they go up and I can tie the plant as it grows and it keeps the plants from growing all over the ground.

    There goes that wonderful Aussie ingenuity again!! Garden now looks super. What do these things taste like anyway? I have heard they are a bit like watermelon. Is that true?

    Nice job, my friend!

    Very nice transformation.  Great idea for the top of the cattle panels.  Looks good too.
