Thank you moon-grower - I did think that might be the case. Do you have any ideas of what I could grow in a pot that would be robust and hide the ugly wall?

Some of the smaller clematis will grow in pots. is it possible to uncover a small patch of earth anywhere? In an area the size of a paving slab you could plant a hydrangea petiolaris which would easily cover your wall in time, but its too vigorous for a pot. Alternatively you might consider softening the look of the wall with something like pots of bamboo. Or you could fix troughs near the top of the wall and grow things to trail down. Or wall troughs at various heights - many options for planting. (Don't make the mistake of getting ones that are too small though - larger ones are better for the plants and don't dry out so quickly as small ones) Makes a difference which direction your wall faces. as to what will do well.
