I want to plant a non invasive creeper/ vine to grow onto a wall then up a trellis…total height about 2 metres. It will be in Sun for most of the day and I’m hoping to screen out the neighbours. I don’t want it to grow and be invasive. I would appreciate your help. Kind regards .. Jo

Hi Jo, Local knowledge is always best here – so check out local plants in your neighbourhood or ask at the local nursery or gardening club. You might look at Allamandas (yellow flowers), the Bower vine (pandoreas) or dwarf bougainvilleas. Don
