Description
Climbing plants have always successfully competed for space and light in a competitive environment; hence they are ideal for today's contemporary gardens where space can be at a premium. They can work with other plants and offer opportunities for display without compromising on space.

When planting climbers by walls please site them at least 40cm away from the rain shadow area of the wall and angle the plant into the wall. The provision of some means of support, even for self-clingers, is recommended, as this will accelerate their establishment and aid vertical coverage.

Climbers will perform well in areas that have been well cultivated and prepared with organic matter.
Clematis grow well in alkaline soils, but also tolerate neutral to acid soils. When planting in acidic soils, incorporate lime to lower the pH to 6.5 or above.

With large flowered cultivars ensure the root crown is 6cm below the planting hole rim/ground level. Deep planting encourages a healthy basal root crown of buds abd is a precaution against 'Clematis Wilt', or sudden wilting. Evergreen species rarely suffer from 'Clematis Wilt' and should be planted with their root crown level with the surrounding soil.
