Climbing plants bring an extra dimension into your garden. These plants climb and adorn walls, fences and pergolas with their handsome foliage and cascading flowers. They are very versatile: either planted alone or in a combination they are ideal for disguising unattractive and bare walls and fences. Climbers such as the clematis can even be grown through shrubs or small trees for an innovative effect. Climbing plants can be very impressive or they can create a subtle effect, and, as they take up very little space, are suitable for all gardens.
