Climbing plants can be used for many jobs in the garden, with probably the most common task they are set to do being to transform an unsightly garage wall or bare fence into something more attractive to look at from the kitchen window!
We stock a good range to deal with most requirements. For covering large areas Montana Clematis are excellent. Montana Tetra rose will become smothered in rose pink blooms in early spring, which are delicately scented, the leaves having a bronzy tinge to them. Another candidate for a really big area the Russian Vine otherwise known as ‘mile a minute plant’, although it can be very exuberant!
If you love really showy flowers then of course there are many varieties of clematis in stock to choose from. 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 the garden. An evergreen variety such as ‘Lonicera Henryi’ with purply-red flowers or ‘Lonicera Graham Thomas’ with beautifully scented creamy-yellow flowers, to name but a few.
Climbing plants may need some attention in the form of tying in to trellis or other kind of support, a little pruning or some encouragement to grow in the direction to want them to! But they can add height and structure as well as colour and fragrance, which will make it well worth finding a place for them in your garden.
