Climbers are highly versatile plants with a natural tendency to climb, scramble or ramble. They are excellent for covering  walls, fences, trellis, unsightly features or pergolas, or even to clamber over natural supports such as conifer trees, bushes and shrubs. Some climbers twine around the framework they're designed to scramble over, whereas others such as Hedera, Campsis and Passiflora actually self-cling to their climbing surface. The structure you use to support your climber should be secure and strong, because the plants can become heavy with age.

Climbing plants can be used to brighten up your vertical planting areas such as bare walls or simply provide beautiful flowers, lush foliage and a fabulous scent for your garden. If you're looking for climbing plants for sun then Trachelospermum and Campsis are an excellent choice, whereas the best climbing plants for shade are Parthenocissus and Akebia Quinata (also known as Chocolate Vine). Many climbers are also excellent wildlife attracting plants, whilst Hedera varieties such as Hedera Hibernica make useful groundcover plants and Hedera Helix is suitable for growing in a container.

Clematis are one of the most popular climbing plants in our gardens. Not only are they excellent for covering walls, arches, pergolas, fences or unsightly tree stumps, they also come in a huge range of colours and shapes. They prefer their heads in the sun and their roots in the shade, so use other plants to provide the necessary shade or cover the ground with stones or flat pebbles. With varieties flowering in spring, summer, autumn and winter, you're bound to find a suitable Clematis for your garden.
