Climbing flowers: wall design

Posted: 25/02/2014 at 06:59

I can't think of any climbing flower that doesn't need a trellis, net or wires to climb up.  Sorry.

 Perhaps if you can give us some idea of the situation we could suggest a simple support you could construct without too much difficulty.

Tracey - strawberries are ok outside.

What sort of geraniums - the hardy sort or the bedding sort that are really pelargoniums?

The title was a contentious issue a long time ago with someone else - but not with this WUM - it makes no difference to him whatsoever - he'd challenge us whatever we called it - what he doesn't like is that it doesn't have his name on it.

If we change it now we'll have to change it again and again.  I think the time to change it is when there is nothing aggravating happening - then it's our choice and no one else's

No idea why that website says don't do it then - not my area really   - if someone wants to enquire why they say that, there's a form for contacting the author at the bottom of the page if you scroll down.
