Well, I did have a lonicera "Mint Crisp" on one side, but Lucky (our Border Terrier) dug it up. I still have it, though. Have just ordered a Choclate Vine, which would be great here. Perhaps both, one on either side, to begin with. Have ordered some aptly-named clematis, though, the main one being C. "Willy" (for Willy Wonka, of course, lol!).

It does look like it might melt on a hot day, doesn't it, Jacque, irish and Tt?

Cat, I get a chcocolate craving every time I think of this garden-to-be, lol!

Sewingkilla, I know of the arch you speak about. It would be nice, with the gate leading you through to another part of your garden. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you, and have a Very Happy Birthday when it arrives!
This one is plastic, comes in green or white, but I changed it with a couple of cans of spraypaint in a shade called "Chocolate" (well, what else would I choose, lol!)

Gee, oh yes, very hard work - and on the hottest day of the year so far, lol! The temp actually entered double figures - 11 degrees C - better get the sun screen out, haha!

Panther, I really hope so, but it's great fun, no matter what!

It is the same one David!! and very nice it looks too in chocolate!! Have you planted it up yet? would love to see it with plants in. Hubby just off to buy some gravel to set it on so its level and i thought i'd put some in the bottom of the tubs for drainage and stability. Will post photos when i get the plants in...can't wait LOL

Hi Majeeka - yes, I know how you love your arches and trellises, haha!

Hi, Sewingkilla - my arch is planted up now with Akebia quinata ("Chocolate Vine"), Akebia quinata "White Chocolate", and a honeysuckle, Lonicera "Mint Crisp". Is this chocolatey enough, do you think, hee hee?
