Climbers and Creepers Planting Guide & Tips

Plant Type

Climbers and creepers is a group of plants or vines which need support of some kind in your garden. Because climbers and creepers grow vertically in the garden they are great space savers and can be used to provide masses of foliage so are useful to cover walls, trees or a fence. Climbers and creepers can also provide great privacy but they do need a bit of attention and care. Find out all the gardening information you need on climbers and creepers, from soil to flowers to sun or shade, to make sure your climbers and creepers grow to their full potential and provide your garden with the screen or burst of colour you need. We have information on all kinds of climbers and creepers from the popular Bougainvillea to the Wisteria and Ivy.
