Wrought-iron trellis perfect for growing Virginia creeper
Garden designers will often suggest growing Virginia creeper up an outdoor wall trellis rather than on the house wall itself, both to protect the façade and so that this enthusiastic climber has a sturdy growing support. This also ensures that the self-clinging vine is ‘tamed’ and will cover the garden trellis with a sea of bright green leaves and berries in summer. In autumn the Virginia creeper is just as attractive, as its leaves slowly turn glorious shades of orange and red, creating a living wall of rich autumnal colours that will take your breath away.
Growing fruit and vegetables on your wall-mounted trellis
These gorgeous outdoor wall trellises are also the perfect choice for certain fruits and vegetables. In small vegetable gardens, a wall trellis planted with runner beans can work brilliantly – the beans grow up the wall in a space-saving manner and, at the same time, they transform the plain house, garage or barn wall into a glorious – and productive – vertical garden. But if beans aren’t your thing, there are countless other plants that would be happy to make a garden trellis their home too, such as ivy, wisteria, clematis, berries, kiwis, hops and – of course – roses.
Adding some Italian flair to your garden
With this Mediterranean-style wall trellis you can bring a touch of Italian flair to your own garden and create a space in which you can savour the joys of ‘dolce far niente’. As well as creating a relaxed and calm atmosphere in your garden, the Osborne Single and the Osborne Double are also both fantastic choices if you are looking for a truly exclusive way to green a façade.
