3 Sector Vertical Plant System from Infill3 Gallery

Ramblers Scramblers & Twiners by Michael Jefferson-Brown (ISBN 0 - 7153 - 0942 - 0) describes how to choose, plant and nurture over 500 high-performance climbing plants and wall shrubs, so that more can be made of your garden if you think not just laterally on the ground but use the vertical support structures including the house as well.

Warning - Just as it is a mistake to try to keep a tiger in a dog's kennel, it can be a disaster to plant a rampant grower in a site that it will very quickly outgrow. Strong climbers, especially self-supporting ones (Ivy, Ampelopsis, Parthenocissus and Vitis), can quickly get to the eaves, where they may sabotage gutters, and if allowed to get onto the roof, distort or even dislodge tiling. Climbing roses must be supported by humans tying them to structures since the roses cannot do it themselves (keep the top of the structures 3 feet below the eaves so that annual pruning can reduce the risk of the odd stem reaching the guttering!!).

There are 3 sectors on a house wall or high wall:-

  • 0-36 inches (0-90 cms) in height - The Base. This gives the most sheltered conditions in the garden, with soil and air temperatures above those of the surrounding area. This area will suffer less buffeting from wind. Soil care will be ensuring a high humus content - to enrich the nutrient value and help to create reservoirs of moisture. Light intensity will depend on the aspect of the wall (North-facing will get very little sunlight) with the surrounding buildings and plants, including trees.
    The following pages in InFill3 gallery cover
    The Base:
  • 36-120 inches (90-300 cms) in height - The Prime Site. As the plant moves upwards to about 6 feet, conditions change: plants still benefit from the reflected heat and stored heat of walls warmed by the sun but have more light and air. Many climbers will have established a trunk below and now begin to spread themselves. This middle section is visually important, because it is at eye level and just below that that we should display those items to which we want to draw most attention. Most of the shrubs that are suitable for growing against walls are between 3 and 10 feet in height.
    The following pages in Infill3 gallery cover
    The Prime Site:
  • Above 120 inches (300+ cms) in height - The Higher Reaches. This is only likely to occur on house walls and other tall buildings with climbers and trained trees/shrubs covering all the way up to 36 inches from the guttering at roof level ( to prevent ingress to the internal roof space or blockage of the guttering).
    The following pages in Infill3 gallery cover
    The Higher Reaches:

The climbers in this gallery have been placed into one of these 3 heights with the Text Box Boundary in:-

  • Blue for 0-36 inches (0-90 cms)
  • Green for 36-120 inches (90-300 cms)
  • Red for above 10 feet.

This Gallery splits the climbers into their following ways of climbing:-

  • Ramblers/Scramblers - These climbers lean on other plants or need artificial supports to climb - Roses, Jasmine, Espalier-trained Fruit Tree/Fruit Ramblers. These are suitable for house or building walls where vine-eye and wire or 1 inch square timber trellis support structures can be erected up to 3 feet below the gutter for the climbers to be tied to with natural twine (not plastic or metal wire - stems grow sideways but plastic and metal contrict this, whereas natural twine will eventually rot or be broken by the expanding stem), or they can be trained on chainlink fences, trellis, pergolas or arbours. Herbaceous Clematis has been added since the top growth dies off completely in the Autumn and Non-Climbing Clematis since it will require being tied to a support structure. In theInfill3 Plants Index Gallery, these climbers go into the
    3a House-Wall Ramblers
     
  • Self-Clingers: Aerial Roots - A series of roots are produced along the length of its stems. These attach themselves very strongly to the surfaces they find - Ivy (Hedera).
    Self-Clingers: Sucker Pads - Tendrils are produced along the young growing stems, opposite the leaves. The main tendril stem divides into a number of slender filaments, each of which has a scarcely perceivable pad at its tip.Once the tips have established contact, the tiny pad is much expanded and becomes a significant sucker, which fits so strongly to the surface that if the stem is pulled away the suckers are left behind- Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus quinquefolia).
    Self-Clingers: Twining - Many climbers find support simply by twining their stems around any object they find - Wisteria and Honeysuckle.
    Self-Clingers: Twining Leaf-Stem - Some climbers make do with sensitive leaf stalks which wrap themselves around objects for support - Clematis. Others establish themselves with thorns, hooks, spines and prickles.
    Self-Clingers: Twining Tendrils - A group of climbers climb by producing a series of tendrils. These are touch sensitive and will curl round any small object they come into contact with and thus enable the plant to climb securely on itself or other plants or manmade support structures - Chinese Virginia Creeper (Parthenocissus henryana), Sweet Pea and the Pea Family (Leguminosae).
    All these Self-Clingers are suitable for garden walls, chainlink fences, trellis, pergolas or fedges, but not for House-Walls. In the Infill3 Plants Index Gallery, these climbers go into the

Deadhead spent blooms to prolong flowering in Full Sun.

These flowers are very popular for exotic-looking floral arrangements.

They seldom start to flower before they are 60 inches (150 cms) high.

cobaeacfloscandenswikimediacommons

Sow under cover January-March - on their edge rather than laying them flat - and then pot them on into a 1 or 2L pot and make them a frame of sticks in the pot over which they will climb. Plant out after last frost, with their climbing frame. Plant out on south-east facing walls.

Space them 30 inches (75cm) apart at the base of a frame or wall.

Its evergreen leaves are up to 5 inches (12.5 cms) long, in 4 leaflets, accompanied by branched tendrils with lots of tiny hooks. These help it to climb, but a little extra help with ties early on can be rewarding.

The Base - Annuals
A vigorous climber from Mexico with large, pale violet or purple flowers. Strictly a perennial (grown as such it will take over the green-house), but best grown as a half-hardy annual when it can be grown in the open. May be hardy outside in some regions with frost-free protection in winter.

Grows up wall supports or through and over shrubs and small trees.
Easier in the UK to grow it in a greenhouse and you can also grow it in pots. Grow it South- or West-facing.

Keep indoors in a greenhouse at 7C in the winter to prevent death by freezing.

Sow seed outside in May.

There are 2 varieties, var. f alba, with white flowers; and var. variegata, which has leaves variegated with creamy-white.

Cucurbita maxima (Winter Squash)

Plants exist with a "bush habit" that is particularly evident in young plants, but older plants grow in the wild-type vining manner.

Yellow

This is grown for its fruit - pumpkins, rather than for flowers. These ripen and colour in the autumn and can be collected then and used for indoor decoration during the winter.

Sow seeds singly in pots in gentle heat, about the beginning of April and they are planted out as soon as the risk of spring frosts has gone. They can also be planted directly in the soil in May, but they will be later comiing into fruit.

Flowers from Jul-Sep and the seeds ripen from Aug-Oct

24 x 200
(60 x 500)

Plant 96-120 inches (240-300 cms) apart.

The Base - Annuals
Position, beds in frames, on heaps of decayed manure or refuse, or on banks, the shoots runnig down the slope. Pinch out points of main shoots when 18 inches (45 cm) long once planted outside; no pinching required afterwards. Fertilise female blooms. Water freely in dry weather. Apply liquid manure frequently after fruit is set. Fruit for preserving should be cut when yellow and then be hung up in a dry room till wanted for use.

Cucurbita - the various ornamental gourds are tendrilled climbers to grow on trellis on the wall or on trellis between the flower and vegetable garden as a summer/autumn screen.

Cucurbita maxima includes the giant pumpkins, they are very large-leaved.

They are killed off by frost.
The best soil is a light, sandy loam.
Well-drained, moist, acidic, sandy, loamy soil in Full Sun or Part Shade.

Grows well with sweetcorn and thornapple, but dislikes potatoes.

Cucurbita moschata
(Butternut Squash, Winter Squash)

Creamy-White to Orange-Yelllow

This is grown for its fruit - squashes, rather than for flowers. These ripen and colour in the autumn and can be collected then and used for indoor decoration during the winter.

Sow seeds where plants are to grow in May and June.

Flowers from Jul-Aug and the seeds ripen from Sep-Oct

Harvest in fall for culinary use. Young flowers, leaves, shoot tips and seeds are also edible.

24 x 200
(60 x 500)

Plant 96-120 inches (240-300 cms) apart.

The Base - Annuals
This annual vine can easily be grown from seed. It is best grown in fertile, organically rich, medium moisture, well-drained loams in full sun. Fertilize well, as plants can be heavy producers. Fruits resting on mulch, straw or boards resist rot. Plants will continue to produce until the first frost if all fruits are picked prior to maturity. Harvest summer squash when young before flesh gets woody and seeds harden. Harvest winter squash when mature but prior to first fall frost.

Summer squashes can be eaten raw in salads or stir-fried, batter fried, steamed, or cooked in a variety of additional ways including such things as zucchini breads. Summer squash blossoms are excellent in soups and stews, sauteed, stuffed, or dipped in batter and fried.

Suitable for training across the roofing beams of wooden pergolas, or on an upright trellis fixed to a south-facing house wall.

They are killed off by frost.

The best soil is a light, sandy loam. Well-drained, moist, acidic, sandy, loamy soil in Full Sun or Part Shade.

Grows well with sweetcorn and thornapple, but dislikes potatoes.

Each evergreen leaf has a branched tendril to act as a self-clinger with twining tendrils. It may survive overwinter in milder areas, but either treat it as an annual, or plant in pot and overwinter plant in frost-free greenhouse.

The Base - Annuals
Seed is sown under glass in February; the seedlings are potted up and planted in May, the plants flowering about 6 weeks later. In warm , sheltered gardens facing the sea, this climber will live for many years, growing 60 or 72 inches (150-180 cms) high and clambering over bushes, covering them with tubular, orange-red flowers. It likes a fairly rich soil, especially when cultivated in a cool greenhouse, where it is perennial.

This is one of the fastest growing climbing plants and is useful for clothing pillars, pergolas, arches or just to grow over a strong shrub or tree.

Limit its growth to a trellis of up to 60 inches (150 cms) from the ground on a house-wall and cut off any shoots reaching above this.

It is liable to seed itself around.

It is however a climber that needs a bit of careful help through the season to get attached.

Sunflower is pollinated by bees and some farmers place bee colonies in sunflower fields which produce honey as a by-product.
Easy to grow, branching habit so great for cut flowers. A charming flower for the youngsters to have a go at growing.
Removal of browned and tattered plants from the garden after bloom may improve the appearance of the landscape, but is a great disappointment to local bird populations that love to feed on the seeds.

Ipomoea coccinea
(Quamoclit coccinea, Star Morning Glory, Red Morning Glory, Redstar)

Ipomoea indica
(Ipomoea acuminata, Ipomoea learii, Blue dawn flower, Ocean-blue Morning-Glory)

Under favourable conditions, I. indica can produce large amounts of seeds that easily germinate establishing new colonies, which rapidly invade new areas and climb on mature trees, shrubs and other plant species producing a profuse canopy and consequently outcompeting the supporting species for nutrients, water and sunlight. This species has allelopathic activity and releases a chemical that is poisonous to native plants.
In New Zealand and Australia, it is listed as a problematic environmental weed.

Used by Humming-birds and butterflies, as ground-cover and in pots.

All its parts are edible. The flower has most often been consumed, making for an especially ornamental salad ingredient; it has a slightly peppery taste reminiscent of watercress, and is also used in stir fry. The flowers contain about 130 mg vitamin C per 100 grams (3.5 oz), about the same amount as is contained in parsley. Moreover, they contain up to 45 mg of lutein per 100 gr, which is the highest amount found in any edible plant.
