Wow worked at the other end today and clipped the ivy which was trailing on the ground. Only 3 more to go now. There is a metal fence directly behind the wall. It belongs to the field on the other side, ie a few horses pop their heads over.so I was wondering if sweet peas would be suitable right at the back of our wall? ie they would grow up the fence...any suggestions/thoughts? Will post some pics at the end of the week.

has anybody mentioned a clematis.they have osme that flower at all times of the year and if you can put the roots in the cool, it might just creep across and down ..

and i see in my thompson and morgan catalogue that there is a honeysuckle that flowers in the winter which would be nice as honeysuckle grows nearly anywhere................that might go across and down as well

you're doing a great job denise....when you are finished, i have plenty of gardening for you here that i can't get time to get to....
