looking at the picture of a cottage with wisteria and clematis growing in abundance round the door and windows it puzzles me how the walls look freshly painted yet the flowers are well established,do they paint round the plants?or have it on a removeable trellis?then theres ivy growing on some cottages and still beautifully painted walls and sills etc,,whats the secret? so i can copy it!!!
