How can I help my plant to climb?

Give climbers support by fixing horizontal wires, 45cm apart, to your fence or wall. Space the vine eyes 1.8m apart horizontally, then run wire through them. Secure the ends by looping through the eye and wrapping around the shank. You can tighten the wire using a pair of pliers to turn the end of the vine eye.

How do I keep my vegetable plants upright?

How do you encourage vine growth?

To encourage bushy growth on young vines, pinch out the stems' terminal buds. If you want just a few vertical stems, though (for a tracery of growth around a column, for example), don't pinch. Instead, remove all but one or two long stems at the base.

How do you train a clematis to climb?

After planting, untie stems from the cane and push four or five canes into the soil near the clematis and angle them towards the trellis, securing them with garden twine. Select four or five main shoots and tie them to the canes. Allow them to grow vertically up the trellis and tie in side-shoots to fill in the gaps.

How do I encourage ivy to climb?

Pull an end of ivy off the ground, being careful not to loosen it from the soil. Lay the end up against the wall and put a piece of tape over it near the bottom. This holds the lower end of the ivy in place while you adjust the upper end. Decide on the direction you want the ivy to run and put it in position.
