Excerpt from The Gardeners' Monthly and Horticulturist, 1883, Vol. 25: Devoted to Horticulture, Arboriculture and Rural Affairs

Asking a friend, who had a beautiful rural resi dence, why She did not plant vines, or creepers as the English would say, over the walls, she replied by referring to a mutual acquaintance who had done so With the result of making the walls so damp that the vines had to be cut away. It so happened that we knew all about the affair. The vines were allowed to cover the eaves, over the gutters and push their way in under the shingles Of the roof. Thus Obstructed, the water made its way down into the wall, from the top under the roof, and of course the wall was wet. Vines should always be kept cut down below the roof. It is a little trouble to do this once a year, but we cannot get even our shoes blacked without some trouble. Those who know how beautiful and how cosy looks a vine - covered cottage will not object to the few hours' labor it requires to keep vines from stopping up the gutter. Vines really make a wall dry. The millions of rootlets by which they adhere to the wall absorb water; and an examina tion will prove a vine-covered wall to be as dry as an old bone. One great advantage of a vine covered cottage, not often thought of, is that it is cooler in summer and warmer in winter than when there is but a mere naked wall. There are only a few Vines that will cling of their Own accord.
