 Northern lass , clemaitis ball , basically it is 2 hanging baskets with cable ties and 4 small clemaitis from Morrisons , in the winter I trim it off and put it in the greenhouse for protection , bring it out in the spring , feed water and hopefully away it goes . Got the idea a few years ago from a gardening talk by a Clemaitis grower , in fact she even recommend Morrisons clematis because you need small ones , hopefully next year will be much better , give it a try

Put tomatoes into 6 hanging baskets , they should have been cherry toms that hang down but they turned out to be normal ones , looks mighty strange 

also did a clematis ball , takes a couple of year to look fab , had one before but really bad winter a few years ago finished it off even though in greenhouse
