i have an 8ft high metal arch. Can anyone suggest a fast growing climbing evergreen plant that is happy in very chalky soil. 
I appreciate any suggestions put forward.

    If your arch gets good sun Star Jasmine (trachleospermum jasminiodes) would do the job and it has very fragrant flowers - just don't let it dry out in the summer months
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    Just make sure it's suitable for your location. It's only frost hardy, so won't survive everywhere in the UK - assuming that's where you are  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
