Supporting your climbing plants – its worth doing it properly climbing plants
If you are considering growing some climbing plants this year its worth considering installing a good support system. Simply using thin wires and vine eyes is alright up to a certain point but consider that your climbing plants could last 50 years or more is worth investing in a more suitable plant support system. The GardenAdvice team use galvanised wire rope 4mm and 2mm with a small Turnbuckle, wire rope clamps and wire rope thimbles to guide the wire rope plus anchor hooks. It all sounds a bit expensive but using suppliers such as toolstation.com it costs around £6 for a small plant such as a clematis and £15 for a larger plant such as a wisteria.
