With each variety thoughtfully chosen by our trusted growers, our scented climbing plant is a must-have for those with an appreciation of beautiful fragrances. Whether you find yourself relishing the sensuous fragrance of Jasmine, or like the idea of Honeysuckle's sweet aroma dispersing around your summer garden, this collection will not disappoint! These varieties don't merely offer gorgeous scents, but will importantly provide their lasting, flowering displays from as early as April time too (and right through to late autumn).
Please note, while five varieties are detailed below, this mix will include three of those at random.
The key is to regularly water newly-planted plants, at least bimonthly for two months. It is also important to ensure adequate spacing between bushes, which is determined by a rose's eventual height and spread.
Bare root and containerised plants have differing planting requirements. With bare root, it is important to soak the roots in water for up to two hours before planting, and with containerised plants, you should drench their rootball. For bare root plants, it is also beneficial to prune any woody roots back a few inches, and if you have a containerised plant, you should free any spiralized roots that are growing around the rootball's circumference. When planting, bare root plants need a graft point that is above the soil, but for containerised plants, it is better to have their pot sitting no less than an inch below the ground.
Bare root and containerised plants also share some of their planting needs; dig a hole twice the radius of the rootball, and fill the hole with a mix of compost and garden soil. After this, add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. After providing a generous watering, you can finish with a later of mulch, but keep it from touching your plant's stems.
Apply fertiliser and replace decomposed mulch come spring. Collect fallen leaves in autumn.
Unlike many of our climbing plant offerings, this is a collection of differing varieties, so we have broken down their specific care information below:
- Honeysuckle : Honeysuckle plants are wonderful for the beginner gardener and are suitable for growing in the UK. They appreciate full sun, but will be fine in partial shade.
- Jasmine: The varieties of Jasmine we stock are native to colder environments, so they will be fully hardy in UK weather. Jasminum nudiflorum (winter jasmine) will flower even in partially shaded, cold sites, while Trachelospermum jasminoides and other species of Jasmine benefits from full sun, but will cope in dappled shade.
