Climbing Plants

A climber is a garden plant which attaches itself to a support such as walls, trellis or gazebo.

Briefly there are two main types of climbing plant; ‘self clinging’ climbers which cling to walls without the need for support (such as Ivy, Campsis and Virginia Creeper). And secondly there are those climbing plants that do need support in order to wind and cling (examples would be Jasminum, Wisteria and Clematis - their stems wind around the poles to which they attach. There are also those climbing plants that as well as stems for support also have tendrils (such as Passiflora and Vitis).

Climbers are an excellent option for your garden for a variety of reasons: they hide ugly corners and lend more privacy to your environment creeping their way up arches, pergolas and gazebos. Their variations in height are important for a strong and impactful garden display; and to the smaller gardens they are a wonderful opportunity to have a strong floral display growing upwards thus creating your very own lush green wall. Their depth lends a sense of visual perspective to the garden.

 We sell a huge range of climbers ranging in size from 1 metre to 4.5 metres high
