Garden Gate Climbers & Wall Shrubs
Add some visual depth to your garden! With our climbers and wall shrubs, you can easily create a profusion of flowers or an evergreen wall. Tendercare’s high-quality climbing plants on screens, canes and frames will green every garden, no matter how big or small. Since these plants climb upwards they require almost no space. Walls, fences, pergolas, arches and tunnels all provide the perfect setting for climbers and wall shrubs. With their beauty, they surely will turn any outdoor space into a green paradise.
Functional climbers and shrubs
Add some colour to your garden and bring your outdoor space to life. In small gardens, or even patios and balconies, climbing plants can be used to unify a space and increase the surface area. The climbers are applicable in many ways and take up little ground space. In somewhat bigger gardens, these plants can create a sense of enclosure and privacy by dividing the garden into multiple sections. They also provide shade on summer days. Climbers also supply great resources for birds, bees and butterflies. Their fruits and flowers attract insects and shrubs will provide shelter and nesting spots for birds. Hedera and Lonicera are great examples of this. Shrubs even improve the environment since their leaves will insulate the house and help fight pollution.
Decorative and versatile
Climbers and wall shrubs provide a functional element to any outdoor space, but we should not forget the decorative element: our climbers can make an uninteresting fence look stunning and an unattractive wall look magnificent. Wall shrubs can act as a textural backdrop in a garden and thus create depth and richness. They provide a variety of flower periods or add a green touch to a colourless space, even in winter. Imagine entering a garden that is full of Hydrangea flowers and filled with the scent of blossoming roses. Of course you want your garden to look stunning with flowers or evergreen shrubs, but there are a few other things to keep in mind when choosing a climber or wall shrub:
Where to plant the shrub or climber: do they prefer sun or shade and what kind of soil is best?
Some climbers are as fast as lightning, others take more time to bloom. Keep that in mind when deciding where to plant your plant. In other words: how big does your shrub need to get to cover the space?
All climbers have a natural tendency to grow upwards and some are even self-clinging (like Hedera or Hydrangea). Yet, most climbing plants need some support and thus require tying-in to a screen or frame. Find out what works for your garden.
Our climbers are grown on a tripod of canes for height and instant effect. Our wall shrubs are clipped to form neat two dimensional plants on a trellis, easy to maintain by pruning at the right time of year. Our screening plants are grown on a strong frame of bamboo canes. Our climber fixing kits include all you need to create a strong but invisible support for these plants, whatever the structure you wish to grow them over or against.
