Why is my Virginia Creeper not clinging to the wall?

United Kingdom Gb

My Virginia Creeper is 2 years old but as yet has not attached itself to the wall. It has small feelers that twist around twine I have priovided to hold it up but no suckers. I wanted it to cling to the north facing wall and cover it naturally. It is described as "self supporting"but this is not the case. Is there anything |I can do about this?

On plant Parthenocissus



mine wont grow over my felted roof for some reasen.just give it a hand with a few wires to get it will fill the gaps in itself

Nosey's right, it needs a hand to start with. It doesn't self cling till its got a good few feet of growth, so you need to provide support for it until it "gets a grip"!
