Setting up a trellis during shemitah

Subscribe to our Newsletter


  1. Is it permissible to hang up a trellis net on a wall to support climbing plants? These plants were planted in Tammuz. Initially they began to climb and take hold of the wall itself. Now, though, they started to fall.
  2. Is it permissible to transfer cacti, planted before shemitah, which are currently outside (the planter is on the railing, under the open sky) into a planter indoors?


Rabbi Yehuda HaLevy Amichay
  1. If the trellis is only for aesthetic value, it is permissible to hang it up during the shemitah year. If they are for supporting the plants, is it prohibited.
  2. Yes.
