"Gardeners' World" Making the Most of Climbing Plants: Practical Projects for Arches, Arbours, Pergolas and Trellis by Sue Fisher
Intended especially for city-dwellers with small gardens, this is a guide to making the most of vertical space in a garden. It offers a variety of project-based ideas - some instant and some more involved - for a variety of situations, including a pergola over a patio, an arch over a path or gate, supports for container climbers, a fragrant arbour, trellis screening, and concealing an ugly drainpipe. For each project there is advice on planning and siting, step-by-step instructions, lists of materials, precise planting plans (which cover under-planting as well), and a photograph of the finished project. The book also contains practical information on planting, pruning and after-care, and a detailed plant directory of climbing plants and shrubs.
