Annual climbers

The ultimate in warp-speed gardening, annual climbers shoot up fences and walls like rockets, smothering them in brilliantly-coloured flowers. They're easy to grow from seed – choose from the wide selection in our garden centre in %locations% – and let you create a new display every year, each one more colourful than the last. Here are our favourites:

Spanish flag (Ipomoea lobata): brilliantly tropical-looking relative of morning glory, but with pennants of tubular flowers in flaming shades from red through orange to yellow.
 
Sweet pea (Lathyrus odoratus): the easiest of all the annual climbers, sow pretty, fragrant sweet peas direct at the foot of a wigwam or in pots in October to overwinter for earlier flowers next season. You can also purchase sweet pea seedlings in pots from our garden centre in spring.
 
Black-eyed Susan (Thunbergia alata): masses of simple, open flowers in all sorts of colours from brick red to bright orange, all with a perky black eye.
 
Please ask the staff in our %locations% garden centre for more information and advice about growing annual climbers in your garden.
