Climbing plants

The climbing plants are excellent for ornamental purposes, in fact they adapt to any type of climate and environment, they grow rapidly and do not require special care, they are therefore ideal for those who love gardening and nature and do not have the time necessary to feed this passion .

How to grow them

As the name with which they are usually indicated, they are characterized by other plants for their natural tendency to grow vertically, climbing and leaning against walls, vertical structures, walls, railings and nearby plants. These species can become a real architectural element, because not only do they cover the walls but they can become dividing walls themselves, perhaps to separate the garden in front of the house from the street or to create small independent green spaces inside one's own garden or on the terrace , or even cover walls and other structures that are sometimes not very aesthetic. The features common to all climbing plants are their strong resistance against any type of atmospheric agent and against diseases, in fact these plants are rarely infected and infected by diseases.

Land and care

Creepers need well-drained soils rich in organic substances, they need abundant water especially during periods of drought. The soil that picks up the climbing plant does not need frequent fertilization, it is advisable to choose natural and balanced fertilizers containing phosphorus, potassium and nitrogen.
After planting the climber it is advisable to tie them to the chosen support, possibly not too tight otherwise the plant does not grow at that point, a good habit would be to put some cloth or sponge to protect the plant, it would be ideal to tie the climber to the support with an elastic band. so as to give the tree the chance to grow evenly. Pruning is fundamental for the good growth of plants. Pruning allows you to regulate the growth of the plant and allows us to give the shape we like, it also helps the growth of the side branches in order to thicken it and give strength to the roots. The shoots must be fixed maintaining the necessary distances between them, taking into account growth. It is very important to take into account the growth and growth of the climbing plant once it reaches its maximum maturity, it must be taken into account that the plant grows outside and its roots grow to be sturdy and wide, so they should never be planted near the housing or walls because it could damage the foundations.
