What do you do with an old satellite dish? Well, this would be a good choice. When we moved to our property 16 years ago, this old dish was part of the landscape. I started gardening the area around it, as I moved plants from one home to the new house. Everybody kept saying I should take down the dish. After a while, I didn't even notice it but was thinking that it would be an awesome structure for some climbing rose.
About 10 years ago, I ordered a Paul's Himalayan Musk rose from Wayside Garden. In the description it stated, "Only grow this on a strong structure". The dish seemed to be the perfect thing!! It grows with reckless abandon around the concave dish. It perfumes the air when it's in bloom. I just wish it bloomed all season. It's fleeting in its glory but so worth the wait.
