Climbers cling to and twine themselves around wire and pole structures to end up in a shameless cloud of colour above your head. It’s virtually impossible to ascertain the precise mature size of a typical climber, as most are promiscuous growers that send their side branches far and wide, even beyond the boundaries set for them by the gardener.
Some people question whether it’s worth growing climbing plants in a garden, if they are so undisciplined and are always trying to escape its confines, which means they need regular ‘taming’ sessions with sharp tools to keep them in check. The answer is a resounding ‘yes’! Not only are they valuable for aesthetical reasons, but also as a solution to many gardening headaches.
Below are our top 3 picks of Climbers
