Honeysuckle is good and have a look at climbing hydrangea as well. I've got one on my north house wall and although it is slow growing it is fine.

I put in a Pileostegia viburnoides as being a little different. It actually flowered in its first year! I believe it may be related to the H.petiolaris. It's evergreen.

I've got Clematis Nelly Moser growing on a north facing wall without sun, there are others if you are willing to experiment.

Euonymus will self cling without going mad - 'Silver Queen' and 'Emerald Gaiety' are the ones I'd recommend

It's a bit late in the year to plant clematis. But if you do, chop it down to a foot right now. I've got seven new plants that were purchased in late September that are around 18 inches high and they will remain under glass until next April when I will plant them out. Check my site on how to look after clematis.

Lovely garden you have Muddywellies. Must pay you a visit next time I visit Devon. Your site is brilliant but nothing beats the real thing.
