As we said, they can grow on walls, arches, and even on roofs. But regardless of the species in question, that is, the climbing plant you have chosen, it is imperative that you provide it with something so that it can grow and develop. Some – those without tendrils, like ivy or bougainvillea – will need more help than others; For this, we will fasten them with ropes or wires, leaving about 0cm between the stem and the support to avoid that in the future the wire ends up being introduced as the stem thickens.


Whenever possible, it has to be taken abroad full sun. There are species that can grow in semi-shady places and even indoors, such as clematis, but if you have a garden it is more advisable that they grow in it to be able to see it in all its splendor.


The frequency of irrigation It will vary according to the weather, but in general it should be watered about three times a week in summer, and the rest of the year one or two every 10-15 days.


It should be pruned whenever you want to control growthtowards late fall or early spring. Prune everything you consider necessary; Sometimes, due to the rapid growth of some plants, many long stems of a meter or more are pruned. So don’t worry; If your climber needs a hairdressing session, go ahead.
