Yes Jo i was asking - could I put it on a fence?

Head is beginning to feel less muddy, still coughing  Not falling asleep as soon as I sit any more. Thanks all for asking.

Bjay, noooo, unless the fence very tall & sturdy. It'll be fine for a few yrs but once it gets going it'll be way to big for a standard panel. Actually thinking about it, why not? I've got one, relatively new plant cf other one, that is going very slowly up a NWest facing 6' panel. So a 3-4ft panel ultimately wont do, but a 6' could work, providing it's a sturdy one.

I inherited one on the side of a garage wall. Every yr now I have to get the tallest steps to remove it from the soffits/ under the roofing felt. I wanted it to travel over the actual roof, where it could go mad without any problems, but it just wont do it!

The flowers smell wonderful btw & the dark coloured bare bark also attractive in the winter months.

All stuffed, still drinking wine, but have cleared up in kitchen & have got the shopping list for tomorrow, including OH's wants! J.

Assuming you're referring to HPeteolaris, no, but the stems can sort of 'mark' paintwork of window frames/UPVC, when it's removed. It's self-clinging when established & much easier to pull away from where you dont want it than ivy IME. The stems are quite brittle & a good 'yank' nearly always works. J.

Hehe my first house was a terrace , dad built me raised beds bought plants, loved it ...I have pics. Next was moving in with OH , his slab of grass I transformed to circle lawn with beds around . Next here, slab of grass , pots outside touring caravan as we built house.... Yes I'm new to this , a late starter perhaps to some , parents always gardened , been in same house 45years since moving up from salford
Having worked full time , not had time to garden , bought plants , chucked em in, only grown some seed flowers last 2 years (cosmos mainly) , did some veg in pots year before ....a lot to learn still , last year was first year I took cuttings ..they worked hence I got the growing bug

As a Brummie, living in Salford area, it's still Manchester to me, until the council tax bill arrives.

Right off to grab the remote so I/we can watch MD's gardens.

Tomorrow could be an interesting day- I must bite my tongue, I must not critise, just grin & mutter under my breath. Wellies & gardening gloves at the ready! Byee, J.
