Climbers for north facing wall

    I've got two pots, one on each side of my front door.  They're a decent size but not huge.  It's north facing and I've got a clematis in each one.  Every year I refresh the compost, just by about 4 inches.  I always think they've had it when they die down after flowering, but they come back every year and create a lovely display.  

    So I would say, just go for it.  Sorry I don't know the varieties, they were really cheap, I think I got them from Morrissons for £2 each.  If you don't try you'll never know.  It's worked for me!!

    Forgot to say, there's a trellis above each one, and I just tie them in as they grow.

    North wall. Pot. Clematis. Picture taken this morning. Don't be put off by all the clematis myths.
