Morning everyone 👋 Looks like it’s going to be another lovely day ☀️ Quick question...does anyone have any suggestions for or experience of a companion climber with Star Jasmine please? #help #starjasmine #climber

The star jasmine is very small at the moment and I need to hide an oil tank behind an open trellis

How about a clematis tangutica, they're very fast growing so you would need to keep it in check. They're evergreen too 👍

Thanks so much. I really like it Jane, particularly the yellow & the seed heads which follow. The only thing as you say is keeping on top of it due to its potential growth & I only need it to cover the one trellis panel. I love the idea of an evergreen clematis. I hadn’t realised they existed! Following your suggestion I’ve come across one which doesn’t grow so high, Clematis Avalanche? 🤔 A whole new world of possibilities has just opened up...evergreen clematis! @pelly

I have it together with ivy and i plan to add wisteria and some clematis, so there will be flowers from early spring to autumn @italydiva

Ooh that sounds lovely Giacomo. It will be lovely to have flowers throughout the seasons. Can’t wait to see your photos 😊 I’ve just recently been battling with ivy that had taken over an area of my garden, so we’re not best friend at the moment 😂

Avalanche is an absolute stunner, I have it in my garden, that would be a great choice 😍

I have to admit it’s one of my favourites too Phyl. Pretty little scented flowers and evergreen. It’s got it all 💕 @phyl1978
