Protecting a Climber

Walls offer shelter to climbers and shrubs trained against them but sometimes it helps to add a little extra protection.

You will need:


Best time to do it:


Difficulty: 4 / 5

Drill the wall above the area you wish to protect and insert cup hooks to hang the fleece. Make sure to avoid any electrical wires and use extreme care when using ladders and power tools.

Staple over the top and bottom of the piece of fleece to create hems through which canes can be inserted.

Thread canes through through the fleece at the top and bottom. These will keep the fleece flat and help weigh it down.

Suspend the cane at the top of the of the fleece through the cup hooks on the wall and drape the cover carefully over the plant.
