Synopsis

Uncommon Climbers for Every Garden A Hand-picked Selection of Climbing Plants for Containers, Conservatories and the Open Garden by Allan M. Armitage

Climbing plants constitute a huge, and largely untapped, resource for today's gardeners. Because their habit of growth is primarily vertical, they can be used for utilitarian as well as ornamental purposes: providing privacy, screening eyesores and clothing garden structures, but also furnishing aesthetically pleasing masses of flowers or greenery and drawing the eye upward. In this comprehensive reference, renowned horticulturist Allan Armitage selects and profiles more than 115 of the most useful and attractive climbing plants for a wide range of sites and conditions. Try these climbing plants and add an extra dimension to your garden-literally.
