I think you & I are on the same planet G.Gran - you suggested a raised bed - we have several out the back & you suggested an arch - got one of those at the back too!!
I planted a clematis up the arch at the back (forgotten what type) & it flowered very nicely at the top, but bare all the way up!
Which clem would be suitable to grow up a rose - a lot seem to get quite big?
Blairs - I like the idea of low maintenance, but don't like Mahonia, are the Aucuba & Fatsia extremely hardy?
For any planting what would be the best time of year?
