Hi, I have a south/west facing balcony on a exposed site. Looking for suggestions on what to grow in a container from the first floor balcony down the supporting pole so I benefit from its flowering and smell from my living room which is underneath the balcony. Any suggestions are very welcomed?

I have a white-flowered clematis in flower at the moment ( probably montana alba...? ) and the perfume is just wonderful...how about a very large tub at ground level and letting the clematis scramble upwards !

Thanks for the suggestions.

Not a fan of honeysuckle Greenage as it can be a little unruley and will make the area look untidy..

Sive, i have a few montana's in the garden and indeed are nice but was looking for something different.

please keep the suggestions coming

...........Albertine......
...........Rhapsody in Blue...
...........Kiftsgate..........
...........Everlasting Sweet pea......
