    thanks for all your responses :)Me-thinks Membrane & Gravel makes the most sense, because unfortunately the Chain-Link can't be disposed of, the House being rented.

    Thanks Nigel and KFF, I'll keep it in a sheltered spot for a few weeks, chilly forecast over the weekend. Then plant it out. :blue thumb:

    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. :)

    We’ll wait for the pics, but I suspect what you have is very spindly growth, brought about by a lack of light and relatively high temperatures.
