Choosing a climbing plant

When choosing a climbing plant think about the height, spread and location. Vigorous climbers may exceed expectations! Self-climbing e.g. hedera hibernica, need no support and will happily attach themselves to walls and woodwork. Twining climbers e.g. clematis, like to wind around a trellis or other supporting structure. If you have an arch or arbour to cover, consider scented climbers like jasmine or honeysuckle.

How to train a climbing plant

  1. Ensure that your plant supports are securely in place before planting. 
  2. Train new shoots by carefully and gently tying them to the supports with twine.
  3. If planting to train up a wall, plant around 30cm away from the base of the wall and position supports in a fan design to help the plant grow to an even shape.
  4. Prune any shoots that appear wild and do not fit the main structure.
