Plants and Vines Climb Walls at Whitsunday Terraces

Plants and Vines Climb Walls at Whitsunday Terraces resort and damage the paint work. In the past, the gardener has cut a short section of climbing plants out at the bottom, so that they die and drop off painted walls. Pulling large clinging plants with suckers off walls will itself damage the paintwork, so the slower method of cutting them off from the roots works better.
