Climbers for a Pergola

Andreas Hartung asked 13 years ago
Hi Gerry, I was just wondering if you could advise me on a type or types of climbers which would provide year round coverage around a pergola. The pergola is on a concrete patio so I was planning to use large ceramic pots(not sure if thats possible with climbers.) appreciate your advice.

use a mixture of climbers, such as ivy for year-round greenery, roses for all summer colour, clematis for long periods of flowering, potato vine for late flowers.

Climbers are badly restricted by growing in a pot … and you have to water all the time. Make holes in the concrete.
