    Hello, how are you? I would like you to help me because I want to make a pergola but I am looking for a non-perennial vine, which you can recommend.

      Hello Paula.
      Where are you from? The article recommends some deciduous ones, such as Lonicera or Parthenocissus. Both are very resistant to cold.

    Hello, which climber with flowers would be more suitable for growing in a pot in an interior patio, very bright but without direct sun (Valencia area)

    1.    Monica Sanchez said

      Hi Vicen.

      For bright interiors, jasmine (any variety) is highly recommended. It does not grow much and produces beautiful flowers.

      Regards!

    Good afternoon

    Thanks for all the info before anything else !! I wanted to ask you, what do you mean by not needing support?

    Thank you!!

      Hello david.

      Thank you very much

      With regard to your question, we mean that they are plants that do not need anything to "grab" and climb. Maybe they do need a tutor to guide them, but that's it.

      Greetings.
