Best plants for a garden arch

Check out some of our favourite plants to grow up and over garden arches.

Adorned with plants, arches can help create a sense of journey and transition, from one area to another. This is especially useful if you want to divide your garden into ‘rooms’, for example a patio area leading to a veg patch or herb garden.

What the the arch is formed from is largely up to you. It could be a simple metal or wooden arch or a more ornate stone arch. Some plants can even be trained or pruned to form an arch, with little to no support needed.
