Q What can we grow against a trel­lis set around our oil tank to dis­guise it?

A Grow­ing climbers in pots is a suit­able way to cover your trel­lis but the main prob­lem here is that the plants will re­quire reg­u­lar wa­ter­ing, all year round. Three plants should do it. Se­lect containers that are at least 30cm (12in) deep and ideally more than 45cm (18in) wide and use John Innes com­post. Good ev­er­green climbers in­clude ivies, hon­ey­suckle and, on a south-fac­ing trel­lis, tra­ch­e­losper­mum (be­low).
