Like all living things, plants grow. Not only do they grow above ground, but their roots grow below ground too. Even when a plant reaches its maximum size, it continues to grow in that it bears fruit and flowers, new shoots will replace old ones and, with regards to trees, shrubs and climbers, the girth of the main trunk and stems continues to widen. Deciduous plants grow new leaves each spring and then defoliate in the autumn. This continuous cycle of growing brings about some maintenance requirements in order to preserve a vertical garden.
