Planting Vines

I wanted to plant some vines to achieve some variety in our garden, and the good thing about vines is that they’re eventual size could be regulated and left entirely to the one who grows it. The heights and widths of the vines depend heavily on the structure that they grow on. You could actually plan for vines, which makes it more attractive to include your garden or landscaping project.

The following are some tips for planting vines, which are quite varied:

• Different kinds of vines need different ways to climb, and they should be planted in order for them to climb in the way that is best for each kind. Twining vines needs things to twist around, and each growth twists around supports such as poles. Examples of twining vines are bougainvillea, honeysuckle, morning glory, and American wisteria.

• On the other hand, clinging vines need solid objects to grow on. The so-called aerial roots of these kinds of vines find their way in the crevices that can be found in solid walls. It can cause damage to some, but it would be very minimal if the wall is sound enough. Examples of clinging vines are winter creeper and trumpet creeper.

• For vines that have tendrils, it needs wires, slender strings, or even small supports that it can cling onto. Some examples of vines with tendrils are grape and clematis.
