Essex, United Kingdom
Hi, I want to hide about 120 feet of fence with a fast growing 'something or other' - it would be best not to grow higher than the fence which is the usual 6 foot, and after established I would not want to do much maintenance, just say cutting back each year. The first 60 feet is full shade and the second half is 50/50 sun and shade. I like the look of Pyracantha but looking it up it might not suit shade but ideally I want flowering and colour and an evergreen would be nice for the winter. I live in Essex, the soil appears okay but chunks of clay in it to and since this is the first thing I will have ever planted I definably fit into the novice skill set. Any ideas would be great. David.
