Climber for a Pot

(I posted this in the wrong place... can it be changed?)

Hello all,

The decorative part of my "garden" is on a balcony. I'm looking for ideas for climbers that will work. I already have a clematis montana (doing well surprisingly) and a honeysuckle. There was a rose (Laura Ford), but that died and I intend to replace it in the winter. But is there anything else that springs to mind?

The bit of wall I'm thinking about gets morning sun only and is fairly windswept.

Thank you!

    Clematis montana can get huge, and you may need to remove it from your balcony. A less vigorous clematis might be better. If you are near a Morrisons, they have a good choice at about £2 at the moment. Many are newish varieties from Eastern Europe and very good. Trouble is, they die back in the winter.

    There are also annuals such as climbing nasturtiums and sweet peas that should do well in pots on a balcony.

    I'd go for sweet peas too.
