> I want to plant a creeper/climber to grow on a bridge pergola over a Koi pond. It therefore needs to be evergreen and not bear berries or flowers that could drop off into the pond. Have you any suggestions please.

Hi, Felicity,
Have you tried an Advanced Search here on Shoot (It's the tab next to the green 'Search' tab on the tool bar). When you do, select 'Foliage only' for use and 'Climber' for type. You will get a lot of Hedera (ivy) in the search result, but if you keep scrolling through the plants, you will find some interesting, suitable choices. You can also narrow the search by choosing the amount of sun the site gets. I am personally a big fan of Parthenocissus henryana - it is self-clinging so easier to train.
Happy Searching!
Kathy C
