Gerard has experimented with several different trellising systems.
This photo is of one row of "Lyre"; note the canes are growing
upwards. This has not proven effective in this cool climate growing
area. He has also tried a row of "Geneva Double Curtain" (aka GDC)
where the canes are trained downwards, but this also proved to be a
poor performer in this area and has since been retrofitted.
