WATCH: That’s Gardening – Climbers


In this episode horticulturist Paraic Horkan, gives us hints and help choosing the perfect wall climbers.

Forget painting the sheds this year, how about taking Paraic’s advice and discover the beauty of a more natural covering?

Evergreen Varieties

  • Lonicera Henryi – Honeysuckle – keeps foliage year round and flowers from June – October

Ivy

  • Suitable for very large walls.
