"Yellow canary creeping up your wall"

Have you got a dull wire fence or a gloomy wooden trellis? .If so this bright canary creeper will brighten it up.

The canary creeper Tropaeolum peregrinum is a climbing relative of the nasturtium. It has divided blue green leaves a bit like those of a fig.

This creeper will flower July through to September. The flowers are really bright. .
Fairly small and numerous. They are a bright yellow these will brighten up your garden. These flowers have pretty fringed petals. The canary creeper will grow to about 12 foot 350 cm.

Growing a canary creeper is easy. You can buy the seeds in many garden centers on or off line one address you can buy some from is Creeper they cost about £1.50.

You can grow this seed from Feb to May best to start in pots inside. I have more success this way
Slugs love the fresh new leaves to eat.
The small and the large white butterfly known as the cabbage white will lay their eggs on the canary creeper leaves and the caterpillars eat the leaves.

These seeds are a really good one to grow with your children gets those loving flowers and gardening and learning about seeds, roots, and plants too.

When the frosts are over and these plants are a few inches tall plant out in growing position.

I have grown this creeper as an annual against my fence if you are lucky and your position is very sheltered from frost it may survive another year .mine never have
