Trellis Wickets

Regular price $359.00

The hook and Wicket trellis system used for tomatoes and cucumbers was developed by Conor at Neversink Farm for small scale growers.

Wickets can be combined with any lower and lean system (Qlipr Hooks, Roller Hooks, Tomahooks, etc) to avoid the problematic "leaning" portion of the lower and lean method. Rather the tomato or cucumber vines are laid or layered on top of wickets. The vine never leans but is lowered and moved. This reduces unneccesary time and effort as well as stress on the plant, while keeping fruits and vines off the ground.

Wickets are zinc plated heavy duty 6mm steel. A pack of 40 weighs over 57 pounds.

Wickets should be placed at least every 20” within the row

For 30 inch Bed you would use a 24" Wicket

For 40 inch Bed you would use a 34" Wicket

Fast and Easy Trellising

Hook and Wicket

This system was developed at Neversink Farm by adapting proven large scale systems for the small scale grower.

You can combine Wickets with any vine lowering system (Qlipr Hooks, Roller Hooks and TomaHooks) to convert a lower and lean system to The Hook and Wicket.

Leaning causes stress to the plant and your trellis support. Also the fruit just ends up on the ground anyway.

When you incorporate wickets, leaning is unnecessary and trellising is much easier and faster. Your tomatoes are off the ground and easy to harvest.

Selecting Your Hook Length

You are seeking a good working height where you are not reaching or bending over too much. Your height and personal preference can influence your choice. Our chart should be used as a general guide.

Hook length is based on the distance from the ground to your trellsing support wire or pipe. Use the chart to find the ideal hook for your situation.

"If your workers are on ladders or step stools when trellising then you are burning money" - Conor Crickmore
