Climber for a north facing fence

Posted: 12/06/2016 at 21:06

Just keep the base/roots shaded water/feed well & you wont see any fence in 3 or 4 years, i put another one behind my small shed, now i have to keep cutting it back so i can get in my shed ^_^

It will grow as far as it has something to cling on to, you could cover the empire state building with it ^_^

Hi guys been a while since i've been on the forum, got a wee question for yous... 

A bit of space has become available in my garden, is it to late to sow wild meadow flower seeds or will they still germinate & flower later in the summer or early Autumn ?

While on a recent family trip i ventured into a garden centre and purchased this new shrub with no thought as to where i was going put it, i'm sure we all have done it at some time, two weeks on and i am still none the wiser as to what i should do with it, where to plant it, what to plant it with, i'm now thinking of just potting it on to give me more time to decide, does anyone have any ideas suggestions? 

 It does have an unusual growing habit and colour hence why i had to have it

I've recently planted some Virginia Creeper in a largish pot at the front door, just want it to grow up the wall and over the door and down the other side, don't want it covering the whole wall or shooting all over the place, not feeling so confident that it will work after reading your post pansyface, but he who dares n all that..

Have you considered Jasmine for your arch Kez? i've got one growing up an arch in a very shaded area...
