I'm sure anyone lucky enough to have seen the Victorian Kitchen Garden series on BBC2 in the 1980s, will love this:

The Victorians with their endless source of labour & insatiable thirst for display, used to grow clematis horizontally in circular beds.

This was achieved by laying suitable sticks within a circular border after careful soil preparation, the plants were then planted between these sticks and carefully trained. 

A demonstration is available on the 'Victorian Flower Garden' DVD, with head gardener Harry Dodson.

I have reservations about this being successful with sweet peas.

Love you garden shots, specially the hellebores.

Btw, 'thassorl' translates 'that's all'....speak leftover from  The Archers messageboards, where I was once part of the fittings.
