Climbing plants can be used for many jobs in the garden, with their most common task being transforming unsightly garage walls or bare fences into something more attractive to look at from the kitchen window!
We stock a good range of climbers to deal with most requirements.
For covering large areas Montana Clematis are excellent. One particuar variety is Montana Tetra Rose, which will become smothered in rose pink blooms in early spring. These blooms are delicately scented and their leaves have a bronzy tinge to them.
Another candidate for covering a big area is the Russian Vine, otherwise known as ‘mile a minute plant’, which, as the name suggests, grows very quickly.
If you are after really showy, floral flowers then we have many varieties of clematis in stock to suit your needs. The rich darkness of Jackmanii is always popular, or the soft pastel of Pink Fantasy might be more to your taste, the possibilities are endless.
Honeysuckle is a good old fashioned climber that can bring a wealth of wildlife to your garden. The evergreen variety ‘Lonicera Henryi’, which has purply-red flowers, or ‘Lonicera Graham Thomas’, whose creamy-yellow flowers are beautifully scented, are just a couple that we have in stock.
Climbing plants may need some attention in the form of tying in to trellis or other kind of support, a little bit of pruning here and there or even some encouragement to grow in the direction that you desire, but they can add height and structure as well as colour and fragrance, which make it well worth finding a place for them in your garden.
