Growing Virgina Creeper in a COntainer

Postby bjontario » May 06, 2008 9:10 pm

Am I able to grow a vine - example virgina creeper in a container on my deck or is a container too limited for its root system? If not, are there any vines/ivys you would suggest for containers. Appreciate your thoughts on the matter.

How big of a container are you thinking of? I'm not sure that Virginia Creeper would do well in a container.

In my experience they'll grow any where and every where. :lol:

You would have to watch that they didn't reach out of the container and root where you don't want them.

Would it overwinter in a container Joan?

I'm not sure Lyn, but they are so tough and tenacious that it wouldn't surprise me.
