There is some space - there were 3 cypresses growing there, after all.
The soil has been very much improved and is slightly acid.
We can't grow anything up the wall, particularly not if it's triffid like...because everything along that wall tends to shoot to the top and over to the neighbours, taking away light from their tiny patios.
Had honeysuckles and jasmines along that bit once, but it's too dark at the bottom, so they go upwards fast, in search of light, leaving our wall mainly covered in twigs!
We're only there 3 times a year or so, so it has to be a containable plant that doesn't need training, really.
Hence why I am a little stumped!
I think we will try an acer there.
