I have moved into a house which, instead of a wall, has blue metal roofing panels for a fence. It is about 15 feet high and 25 feet long and very metal and very blue.. in fact it looks like a shipping container has landed in my garden... However, it makes our small garden very private (we are overlooked but you would never know it) and very dogproof (we have a newfoundland who shold be named hoodini). I was wondering if this russian vine would grow up the smooth metal surface or if it would need some sort of wires or something to cling to. It would be tricky to fix anything to it as it is only about 3 mm thick. It REALLY needs covering up!!!
