- 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.
- 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
- 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.
