Have you ever thought of growing a climbing rose up that fence Snappy?
I like all your Violas, they look really cheerful.

Thanks Bob.I am considering climbing roses.I did not think about the fence though.How do you attach them so they stay on it?
I thought of a climbing rose up the archway..

To fasten roses to a fence you would need to run horizontal wires along it around 12 inches apart. I have also grown Blackberries this way too. The cultivated ones are better for this as they aren't as rampant as the wild brambles also most of them are thornless.I just mention Blackberries because I saw your interest in them in past postings. Roses over the arch would be good too.
