Climber for front of house
gavin.purcell1 Posts: 4
Hi, the front of our house is south facing, and we would like to train a climber up it. There is only one window, and a lot of bare stone to cover. We were thinking wisteria, but we will have to plant in a container (oil-drum sized), and I don’t think wisteria is keen on that? We could use two containers, so it may be nice to have different plants that would look good together. Can anyone suggest some plants that would suit this situation? We are thinking wisteria, roses, clematis, Passion flower, honeysuckle... Thanks in advance
You can also add an upturned plastic bottle, or similar, with the bottom cut off, when you plant [lid off too obviously ] so that you can get water further down to the plant roots. That's particularly beneficial for most clematis, depending on the type, and probably roses too.
I wouldn't plant honeysuckle though. Wrong conditions and aspect for it.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
