HOW TO PLANT A CLIMBER ON A WALL OR FENCE
1) Plant Beside Supports
Fix a trellis or horizontal wires to the fence or wall. Then plant your climber about 20cm (8in) from the support, leaning the stems towards it as shown.
3) Tie stems to support
Some climbers will cling to the trellis or wires unaided once established, but it is best to tie them on initially. Use soft twine and tie the stems on loosely.
4) Keep tying in
Water after planting and keep tying on the stems for the first season or two. Feed in spring with Miracle Gro All Purpose Continuous Release Plant Food.
Keep climbers, like this blue passion flower (Passiflora caerulea), well watered for the first year until their roots are well established, and feed them annually in spring with Miracle Gro All Purpose Continuous Release Plant Food
