Bountiful Bougainvillea and The Green Tape

Bountiful Bougainvillea and The Green Tape

Hello green thumbs! Are you ready for summer? I have a wonderful and easy idea for you in your garden with bougainvillea.
These crawling climbers are so pretty and when trained to grow against a lattice they provide shade!
You will need: A sunny spot in your garden with a lattice or trellis for growing, bougainvillea plants, pretty pots, potting soil and green gardening tape.

Step #1-Simply plant your bougainvillea in its pot.

Step#2-Position the pot near the lattice wood

Step #3-Tie the plant to the wood with the gardening tape

(The point of using the green tape is because the tape stretches and moves along with the plant as it grows)
Don’t forget to water your plants about every other day!

Knowing is Growing!




  1. Thank you for the green tape tip. I just bought some bougainvillea and was going to tie it with string.

  2. Ahhh that’s SUCH a good idea! I can even do that on my terras! I can’t really have a garden, but I can add some color all over my wall this way.

  3. Wow, I’m so lucky to have been part of your inspiration. The Bengal Orange is just stunning. Great job and thanks for sharing!
