    Planting to cover a fence 7th Aug 18 at 7:40 AM
    Any suggestions for plants dense enough that I can use to trail over and cover a 6ft tall fence, but not ivy?

    A clematis will probably do the job; its not a bad idea to mix winter and summer flowering varieties.

    Russian Vine, if you're brave enough.

    What area do you live in? Something like trachelospermum would work well in a milder climate and something like Akebia quinata in a colder and your find plenty of Lonicera suitable for everything inbetween

    Personally i'd go for Lonicera periclymenum Serotina or lonicera Japonica Halliana if you want a evergreen, unfussy and low maintenance easy to find at any garden centre or nursery
