Thank you everyone for your advice - (Artjak) I have a large garden and it is tiered - the slope is a strip approx 2 metres deep X 20m long. The gradient would be 45 degrees at least. I am happy to maintain - i dont mind the hard work lol! I My soil at the top of the slope is clay and deep but the actual slope is very rocky and has no real depth to it - just maybe a couple of inches deep in places.
Rosa carriola - i will look at the hypericum calcinum.
Verdun - I cant pull ivy runners as the site was totally stripped of everything - do you mean half cut through the branch I am attaching to the soil to see if it grows roots easier?
i'll try and put up a photo.x
