Hi all.

I have a 6 foot high 44 foot long shed wall, south facing and can be quite windy, facing into my garden and I'm thinking of introducing climbers to it and was looking for any ideas you may have.

What effect do you want? Narrow it down a bit.

Green all year? Colours all year? Fruit? Clinging to the wall? Bushy and freestanding? Soil type? Is the height limited to 6'? A photo would help.

Sorry, newbie here. Can't get my photo to upload. Green all year with colours all year with or without fruit height is limited to 6 foot wetish soil not clay and not rich, easy to maintain would be a plus cam be bushy but would like to cling to wall

Espalier apples.
Photos can only be a maximum of 1mb. You might need to downsize them.

As wall is south-facing you might succeed with Trachelospermum Jasminoides (Star Jasmine.)

With that length, you could use vine eyes and fencing wire, and train two of the Raspberry/Blackberry crosses like Tayberry, Loganberry, Boysenberry etc, They freeze really well too.
