Good Morning, another beautiful sunny day in Snowdonia!!! I want to find a climber to grow up a slate garden wall about 8ft high. It will need to be grown in a container as on concrete path. Shade all morning but sun from mid afternoon. Don't mind colour, evergreen would be nicer but that's justwishful thinking maybe.  The pot can be long but not more than foot and half wide.


For any who saw my first posts , my tiny borders have now been extended and looking quite colourful!!! Rather pleased! Thanks for the advice so far!!

Total novice but loving my new garden.  I'd like to get a coldframe by autumn.  We haven't got any room for a greenhouse.  The only possible position is against the back of the house and it could be up to 2 ft deep and 3-4ft wide max, I don't think height is much of an issue.   We have small people who enjoy a little football in the garden. I think the main uses would be to overwinter tender perennials in pots and young plant seeded in autumn plus providing more space to germinate once weather improving. The way I'm going I might need quite a bit of room!!!


Ive looked on the Internet a little but thought you wonderful people might be able to offer some advice re features and particular suppliers.  The position only gets sun to mid morning but it really is my only option.


Looking forward to hearing your recommendations and advicI.


Thanks in advance, Kathryn.
