For a number of plants, they can sometimes use some extra support. Whether it’s beans or cucumbers in the vegetable garden, or other plants that have to climb to show their leaves and flowers as best as possible. Many plants simply need something to hold on to and grow up. These plants are also called climbing plants.

Climbing plant on rope or wire
If you are hoping that your plants will climb over an existing structure such as a fence or shed, rope or wire will suffice in most cases. Because twine has a habit of spoiling quite quickly, you should only use it for annual creepers or creepers that die back in winter.

If you’re dealing with plants that grow large and heavy over time, you may want to put strong frames or supports for your structure first so it doesn’t have to support all of the weight.
