Morning all,

I am currently getting a shed built and I plan to have a raised bed area in a 'U' shape in which I wish to grow some climbing plants up a trellis (in addition to some bulbs) to help camouflage my shed a bit.

I wish to try a combination of annual type plants & perennial whose presence should be visible all year round.

Also if anyone knows where I can get my hands on nice cheap trellises that would be top

Thanks everyone for your advice,

Samuel

It seems that you are a zone 9, with a maritime climate similar to PNW in USA

So try out theses guys.
