Fast growing

I'm looking for some fast growing trees and climbers. Can anyone advise please.

  • What size space do you have corn the trees and climbers sunny, shaded? Also are the climbers for fences, walls or up the trees?

    Bear in mind that 'fast growing' means they keep growing, and don't conveniently stop at 10 or 15 feet, so maintenance is required.
    Can you give some idea of where you want them, and why, as @Butterfly66 says, and soil type, climate and location. It's difficult to suggest plants without enough info.
    A photo would help too  :)

  • They are for putting up against a fence and soil is heavy clay
  • Solanum Glasnevin is very fast growing but will need support
  • Which way does the fence face?  Some plants only do well in sunny spots whereas others need shade ... etc etc etc

    That's why I asked too @Dovefromabove.
    Some things will cope with all sorts @francesnolan9 , but it's always better to have proper info to give good suggestions  :)

    Are you looking for evergreen or not? Something berrying,flowering, fruiting? How much room is there? Trees and climbers take up a lot of space, so having both may be too much.
