Flowering Fences

For many people, garden fences may be viewed as an essential piece of garden equipment for many reasons. They can ensure privacy from nosey neighbours, they can keep pets in, or other animals out, they can also be used as a form of security. However, garden fences don’t just have to be a functioning part of your garden, they can be a decorative part as well.There are many different types of flowers that you can grow over the fence panels in your garden to make them much more attractive, they can grow at different speeds and come in many shapes and sizes. Consider this before planting so that you know what to expect from the plant.Morning Glory is a popular flowering vine which has bright purple or blue flowers and heart shaped green leaves. They can grow quite fast, and will do so up to 10 feet long. Morning Glory will die back in the winter but the spring will see the arrival of its beautiful blossoms once again.A clematis is a popular plant to grow on garden fencing they last from summer until the frost arrives in the winter, although you can get evergreen types of Clematis. Other names for Clematis are traveller’s joy, old man's beard and vase vine in North America. The Clematis are mainly of Chinese and Japanese origin and can be quite delicate in their early years – careful handling will be needed so that they can grow around the fence panels in your garden.If you would prefer the flowers on your garden fencing to remain all year round then you should go for a Bougainvillea. This plant, natively from South America grows horizontally and vertically for maximum coverage.So choose the right flower for your garden fencing today so you can top your neighbours with the prettiest fence in town!
