Climbers & Vines

Gardeners tips, ideas and products. Climbers and Vines can cloth walls, fences, pergolas, trellises and frames with some of the most magnificent floral displays. All this and yet they only take up a few cm's of ground space.

For courtyards and other small spaces, Climbers and Vines really come into their own. They are not only beautiful to behold but will often fill the area with fragrances, give you privacy where you want it and shelter you from the sun and wind.

Tips and timesavers for you and from you. Some Climbers and Vines are deciduous, some are evergreen, some require support and some will climb by using their own tendrils and by twining around objects such as pergola supports and trellises. Some have aerial roots and adhesive pads which they use to climb brick and concrete walls, or other plants and trees.

Tips and timesavers for you and from you. A deciduous climber allowed to cover a pergola will shade you during the hot summer while dropping its leaves in autumn to allow the sun's rays to penetrate and warm you during the cold winter months.

Tips and timesavers for you and from you. Evergreen climbers supported on a bare fence can turn an eyesore into a thing of beauty. Mosts vines and climbers require a sunny position except in the tropics and hot inland areas where they would benefit from more dappled sunlight.

The soil should be enriched with organic compost and a similar mulch should be placed on top of the planting bed. As the mulch rots down it will add to the plant's food cycle.

Although necessary pruning to maintain the required shape and spread of your plant can be carried out at any time, generally, if you prune after its flowering period, you won't miss out on its beautiful blooms.
