Climber for shady wall?
I am looking for a replacement climber for a north east facing wall.
Ideally I would like a rose but open to ideas. Here are some pics
of the situation. (hopefully! first time doing pics and spacing seems
to have gone strange).
We are talking about the wall on the right with the 2 windows,
sad looking shrub and sad looking daffs. That empty parking
space is mine and I will not be parking in it. The wall faces north
east but as you can see the house is pretty tall so it does not
get much sun. At this time of year, maybe a few hours in the
The plan is to get rid of the shrub that is there at the moment,
which is this.
It had not been looked after prior to us moving in last year and
is mainly brown and twiggy. We will probably keep the bit in the
corner to hide the pipes. As you can see the bed is quite narrow.
We have quite sandy soil but things tend to grow well.
As I said, a rose would be ideal, but willing to consider anything
that flowers and it not too bulky, so we do not lose light in
the dining room. The plan would be to plant up the bed below
as well so any suggestions for that also welcome. Thanks in
