I placed it in the front garden and it is just above the potato bin. I sunk it two feet into the ground so the vines have about thirteen feet to climb.
The six foot bamboo canes were fastened together by creating a flat surface with a chisel were the two canes meet. I then drilled corresponding holes into the canes and bolted them together.
Then with the pole at a length of twelve feet long, I drilled a hole in the top of the cane and drove a three foot cane into the top with wood glue. This formed the full fifteen foot pole for the vines to climb on.
