    Hi,

    It looks like a lot of you have experience of this plant so I hope someone can give me some advice.

    I have a wire fence at the end of the garden that l borders a field. Currently we have brambles and a dog rose on it, but there is a bare-ish section (especially in the winter) and I'd like to plant an evergreen climber.

    I thought Trachelospermum jasminoides would be a good option but I'm wondering how it will cope with the bramble - is it likely to be able to hold its own once established? At the moment the bramble has been cut right back to base, although already springing back up, but we don't want to get rid of it completely as we love the fruits :o)

    Thanks in advance for any thoughts

    I must admit, never thought about these two plants as companions, once established the Trachelospermum will be fine, as long as you keep the Bramble in check, which sounds like you do.
    Be a bit careful with the Tracelospurmum with prelonged frozen ground, they dont like it too cold for too long, and I would, becareful when applying feed, I would use a slow release for the Trachelospurmum, and avoid feeding the bramble, atleast until the other is established.
