This section of the book is from the Guide To Hardy Fruits And Ornamentals book, by Thomas Joseph Dwyer, published in 1903.
We cannot successfully adorn the home grounds without employing some specie. s of this family. They can be used to advantage for so many purposes. The varieties we describe require no special soil and are all perfectly hardy. The after culture of Hardy Creeping Vines is very simple -- an occasional dressing of manure and loosening of the soil is all that is necessary. Holes should be dug for these vines three feet in width and twelve inches deep. Rich soil should be worked between and over the roots and firmly treaded, then tie the vine to a stake or trail it to any thing you wish.
