Canary Creeper – Tropæolum
Half Hardy Annual
Climber. Flowers yellow, July to September.
A climbing nasturtium
with small yellow flowers. It is very easy to
grow, and useful for training up trellises of
fences in out-of-the-way corners that are hardly
worthy of the choicer climbers.
It may be set (together with the ordinary climbing
Nasturtiums) to ramble over a row of pea-boughs,
and in this way will make a quickly-grown screen
to block out rubbish holes, etc. strings may be
stretched vertically on a wall or fence, which
it will soon wreathe with leaf and flower.
The seed should be sown about half an inch deep
and two inches apart, early in April, in the place
where it is to flower.
The soil need not be particularly good.
As soon as the plants are well up, put some bits
of twig in the ground for them to lay hold of,
and provide proper climbing arrangements before
they begin to fall about.
