I live on the Central Coast, NSW and have a very narrow garden strip between my colour bond fence and my concrete pathway approximately 250mm wide. I would like to plant something that would go halfway up the fence, to the top of the fence, or a little above even. I would just like to break up the fence line but am at a loss what might be best. I have had suggestions of clumping bamboo perhaps, a pencil pine, although I can't seem to find anything suitable for that space in a pine/cypress variety. Any help would be greatly appreciated in this area as the landscaping/garden is the last of my renovations. Thanks very much.

Hi & welcome! Is your requirement for a plant that does not lean at all, just goes straight up? 250 mm (between 9-10 inches) is a slim spot. What is the orientation of direction (amount of light?) How tall is the fence?

Try to be more valuable than a bad example.

Can you attach wires to the fence? then guide a vine on the wires.
Plant it and they will come.

Happy 🐜 ant,

First I would like to welcome you to the site!! Welcome!

Jasmine grows and stretches up fences and has a heavenly scent. If you are looking for a vine, that is my opinion lol.
