Has anyone ideas on how I can get some privacy from plants in pots?. Where we live we have a gravelled driveway which is bordered by a small approx 1m3 high and 2 m3 long People can see over this into our main living area and I wondered if anyone has ay idea on what plants I can use in pots to give some form of privacy - I don't want to dig into the gravel and plant hence suggestions for potted plants. I had wondered about bamboo in large pots but not sure FYI it would be West facing.
Please post a photo to help get an idea of the area
Bamboo can be used it big planters but would be so out of keeping with your surroundings.
In the long run it will be cheaper and easier to maintain a shrub or two planted in the ground as you do need something around 6ft but sort of see through like a buddlia or forsythia, maybe Pyracantha trained along the wall and on wires above. just to break up sight lines in the 30 seconds it takes someone to walk past, can't think of any large shrub that would grow this big in a pot and none will give instant privacy.
