    I think a trellis will work well however it’s a shared fence so I’m not sure if we are able to attach a trellis? (Rented property)

    Tatties in a bin ?

    No reason why not. If it were me, I’d produce some holes in the bottom and add a couple of inches of broken up polystyrene to aid drainage before adding any compost.

    A 30cm (12") plant in a 3.5" pot is IMO time for potting up, as by now the roots are probably coming out of the drainage holes. The advice already given is good, however I would prefer to increase the pot size gradually. This will encourge strong roots. Just my opinion.

    Is it possible to reuse the compost from died plants?

    I have in the past used old compost at the base of some pots but I always microwave it first to ensure all unwanted things get zapped.
