Training clematis up fences
I'm keen to cover my fences with one or more clematis, but am a little confused on what exact fixings I need to do the job and whether it makes a difference what fence panels you have?
I have read that vine eyes and wire is the right tool for the job, fixing horizontally however I'm not sure on where to fix them .. my fence panels have battens midway up, concrete posts either side at the 1.8m intervals or whatever the standard is. I'm assuming fixing to an actual internal panel piece is not going to be sturdy enough.
I'll attach a pic of the fences next post.
If it makes any difference, I'm looking at Wisley Cream, Markham's pink, and maybe Pistachio? open to suggestions as I'm not sure these will trail far enough to cover the fence. Having said that I do have a climbing hydrangea in the middle of the fence which will spread both ways (hopefully eventually ...)
