Can you please help me I live next to a park the park is around 20 ft
above our property so all who walk by see into our home worse are the
kinds who throw stones over and bottles
We have a 6ft metal fence up but with gaps
So I have heard of jasminum nudiflorum
Will this be good
As I need something with cover all year round if possible
Also the fence is over 40 ft long
Any more ideas please
Hi Coykiesaol, Jasminum nudiflorum will be a total waste of time, its
not vigorous enough and will take ages to cover (if at all) I think I
would opt for somthing thats vigorous and or evergreen ! You havent said
where you live but these may be useful options. Polygonum baldschuanicum
(Russain vine) very fast growing, a good covering climber, whilst not
evergreen, it will be your cheapest option. Passiflora caerulea (passion
flower) again not evergreen but a very fast, covering climber. Clematis
montana, again very fast growing but not evergreen.
More expensive but evergreen would be Hydrangea seemanii, slower at
first maybe but dense when established. Lonicera Halliana (evergreen
honeysuckle) quick growing semi-evergreen climber.
Dont worry about climbers that are vigorous, work on the basis that
its better to have the quick cover, you can always trim them back if
Also dont be afraid to plant several of the above and let them grow
together, that way, youll get the benefit if the flowers at different
times of the season, from what you say, cover and privacy is the most
Plant any of the first group at 6ft apart (approx) most, as I say are
Hope some of this helps, Lannerman
