Gardening with climbers by Christopher Grey-Wilson( Book )

8 editions published between 1983 and 1997 in English and held by 359 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first section of the book discusses the appeal and the requirements of different kinds of climbers and makes suggestions for exciting plant associations for well-loved species. It also gives practical guidelines on the cultivation of climbers, including pruning as well as training and support. The introduction is illustrated throughout with inspiring colour photographs of climbers in a variety of garden situations, enhancing walls and buildings or camouflaging less attractive structures. The comprehensive directory, illustrated with glorious colour photographs, describes the many climbing species suitable for growing in our gardens. For each, a detailed description is given, as well as cultivation requirements and season of interest. In addition to chapters on the wide range of temperate evergreen climbers and temperate deciduous climbers, there is a section devoted to tropical and subtropical climbers which, in temperate gardens, can bring a tropical feel to a conservatory. With its alphabetical listings and inclusion of the latest varieties and cultivars, the directory is both easy to use and totally up-to-date
