Hi I'm looking for advice please? I have a side wall which is exposed and I want to get a climber to replace the current clemtis which is giving good coverage but isnt a deterrent to kids climbing over my wall perhaps something spikey would be more suited! Also to mention there is not soil, It's a concrete area - I just have the clemetis growing from a container...thanks in advance.

A climbing or rambling rose is another quick spiky option, unfortunatly it is bare during the winter. If you could pair them with ann evergreen honeysuckle you would be onto a winner. But you may need a second container, as it it hard at times to even get one climber to grow well in a container.
