    Golden Privet 'Splitting' ?

    Golden privet, in my experience, is very tough and responds well to hard pruning. My experience echoes that of honeybunny :)

    Evergreen Clematis

    Yes, I can just about see those. As you say in a couple of years it will look good and will disguise the trellis. :)

    How to stake up these....?

    I'm inclined (no pun intended) to agree. :blue thumb: I've found that in adverse growing conditions digging up this type of plant and replanting is a last resort. Climate, soil type etc. all come into play. :)
