Climbers are versatile plants that can be used to cover a wall, clamber over a pergola or add colour to a bed spreading through other plants. Some varieties are self clinging and others require tying and support – they are useful in a garden to add colour without using much area up. There are some beautiful selections available and many Genus such as Trachelospernum carry a rich fragrance.
Research has also shown that growing climbers up a building can reduce heat loss in Winter and cool a building in the Summer.
