help help!! i have just put in 2 garden arches in the front garden over the path to the front door. Got them next to each other with about 2ft between them. they are the cheap metal ladder type - easy to move and not terribly strong. thought of creating a nice entrance to the house, and great outlook onto the green and trees we face.
but what to plant them up with? dont fancy roses, the thorns... besides putting a climbing rose on the wall of house by the doorway.
Like the idea of 4 different plants that compliment each other in terms of colour, would be fantastic to have 4 plants providing 4 seasons of interest. now that would be great!
worried about clemantis as they need cutting back each year, and i would end up with bare stark archways for half the year - poo idea.
who has any thoughts or suggestions to share? i understand i could pland up 2 or more plants in one point, providing double interest... but which?!!
