Hi.

My fence is fairly new, and about 6 and half feet tall. My garden is south facing.

will definately look out for Narrow Water, it sounds lovely.

one other question... will my PHM be ok growing up a north east facing wall at the front of my house, because i dont have any old trees, and I definately dont live on a tennis court

Thank you guys

Has anyone grown the following roses against a fence? Paul's Himalayan musk and Mme Alfred Carriere. I'm getting very mixed opinions from my local garden centre, not to mention from the David Austin team. Ive been told they are far too vigerous for a fence, and I should stick with climbing roses, so I thought its best to ask you.

Thank you.

How do I create extra height to my existing fence?

Hi All.

Thanks for all your advice. I checked with the council, thanks sotongeoff, and yep jo4eyes, you were right. Hinging sounds like a great idea.

Im having a pergola erected too Alina W, and just waiting for my ramblers to arrive...can't wait

thanks again guys.

Thank you so much Lavender lady!! It sounds like we both have a love affair with Roses and lavender I have lots of David Austin climbers, and ramblers arriving soon, so i'm really excited about getting them in the ground, and watching them do their magic. Before and after pics also sound like a great idea. Im really pleased that you have chosen M. Alfred Carriere, Munstead wood, and Noisette, because my best friend has these  in her garden too, and they are part of my collection yet to arrive. They are stunning. Your pics give such a different perspective to what I would like to achieve.

Tootles is right you should write a book!!!

Looks like Mr Rose man is going to be busy at the weekend putting up my Trellis

Can anyone also suggest any roses which would be good in a north east facing front garden...quite shady really.  Ive chosen Zephrine Druhin, and Generous gardener...any ideas, i realise roses need at least 4-5 hrs of sunshine in summer, if not a rose, then a pretty shrub, or another climber that doesn't mind little sunshine.

How do I create extra height to my existing fence?

Posted: 12/11/2012 at 11:35

We live in a modern house which overlooks the neighbours. All I see is brick houses from my kitchen window

I want to plant climbing and rambling roses together with clematis up and along my fence. If I were to support them with wire and eyes alone would this alone support the climbing plants and create an effective tall screening? or do I need to erect a trellis taller than the fence itself? I suppose I would need to consult with the neighbours first out of courtesy.

can anyone help me please?

Hello Lavender Lady.

Can you please tell me the names of your climbing roses are? and also the perenials you used in your garden. Also we also live in a modern house which overlooks neighbours. How can I create extra height onto my existing fence. It has no trellis at the moment.
