Hi - could any one recommend a fast growing climber - next door neighbour chopped ours down - preferably evergreen and with flowers but wouldnt mind putting 2 plants in - we live 200 yards from the sea and we are facing south east - Whitley Bay - thanks - Mick

    Hi Michael image

    What's it going to grow in (container or bed, and what sort of soil) and what's it going to grow up? Fence, trellis, wall ???

    What sort of climber did you have before?  Do you want the same again?

    (and just being nosey, why did NDN chop it down, or was it an accident?)

    Solanum Alba sounds like it could be a winner for me too. is it hardy enough to plant out and leave?

    lovely, i'll give that a go then!

  • I have an Armandii which has annoying leaves(!), so I think I'll give the Solanum Alba a try. Sounds lovely.

  • Solanum Alba - thanks for that - will give it a go - thanks to all people who replied - Mick
