Colour your vertical spaces with climbers. Whatever the size of your garden, there is probably room for a climber or two. In a small space, they add height and interest without taking up much room. Climbers are ideal for softening hard features such as a fence, wall, shed or pergola.
One of our favourite climbers is the delicately scented jasmine. Position it in a sunny, sheltered spot near your front or back door to make the most of the scent. It can be grown in a container, in which case, feed it monthly with a liquid feed. If planting in the ground, make sure it’s in well-drained soil and positioned to make the most of the sunshine. Honeysuckle is another scented climber, and bees love its nectar in the summer months.
Clematis can be trained to climb over a pergola or trellis, through a tree or up a gazebo. Here's how to get the best results:
