Starting at a corner, screw in a cup hook in the center of the 2x2. Evenly space the remaining hooks down the center of each part of the rectangle frame face. You will end up with four hooks running along each side of the frame.
To make attaching the rebar mesh easier, twist the hooks so the top and bottom rows are lined up horizontally and the sides vertically, making them flat for the rebar to fit over. Place the top of the rebar sheet over the top row of hooks and then flip the hooks out so the mesh rebar is sitting in the round part of hook. Repeat this on each side until the rebar is pulled tight and secure with the hooks.
Purple flower clusters (8 inches long) cover this small tree all summer long. Blooms beckon pollinators of all kinds—it’s a great plant for a bee or butterfly garden. Gray-green leaves have purple undersides that complement blooms. Look for other chaste tree varieties with flowers in shades of pink or white. The branch structure is very architectural and adds good winter interest to a landscape. If your chaste tree develops lots of twiggy growth and starts looking more shrub-like, prune it in late winter. Remove all smaller twigs along five or six major trunks to create a tree-looking plant. Size: 6 to 8 feet tall and 8 to 10 feet wide. Hardy in Zones 6-9.
