To cover a bare wall or not?

Thank you so much for your help. I have hope now 

To cover a bare wall or not?

Posted: 23/03/2017 at 12:57

Hi I have a large bare wall at the side of our house, I would love to grow a climber up it (SE facing) BUT my husband says NO, he argues he won't be able to paint the render to match the front and back of the property, and it would look very silly trying to paint round a plant whilst it grows to completely cover the wall. So any solutions please. any climbers that will survive in a pot with a removable trellis to support it, or I am stuck with a plain (but beautifully painted wall!)


Thankyou

Dandylions and nettles all seem fine!

The marigold I had in the same pot is fine, flowering beautifully, strange that's not been infected with any fungus. Wish I'd left the Osteospurmum in the tubs now, may have spread it into soil

Oh dear, I put them in the garden and no improvement, didn't notice any fungus on them, but very small roots as if they'd not grown at all. Thanks for info

Thanks, Hefty, nice to know. I'm going to put mine in the garden when the rain stops! I can't see any new buds on them yet,

Yes, thats exactly what's happened, so disappointed haven't fed them, but maybe they don't like the compost in the tub. Bought them at a charity bedding plant sale so just planted them up with marigolds in tubs, marigolds are ok but no flowers on the Osteospermums.

labels were a bit vague (from a charity sale) they seem quite compact, but then that could be because they are confined to the tubs.

Oops spelt it wrong too!
It's not every day I find I've been too kind to something, wonder if they would be better in the garden rather than a tub (which contains compost)

I have 2 osteospurmum in tubs in sunny spot, they were full of flowers when I bought them and deadheaded them as soon as the flowers died.I was happy to see lots more flower buds coming but now instead of opening they seem to have dried up and gone brown. I have watered them regularly and the plants look OK, just no flowers, what went wrong? Thanks
