Northumberland, United Kingdom
I have an ugly but needed coal bunker that would benefit from being covered by plants. I see that the climbing hydrangea (I've got Hydrangea anomala petiolaris) and the Goldheart Ivy (Hedera helix Oro di Bogliasco) are self clinging. I have not got a garden to plant them in but OH is v handy building raised beds. Any idea how large the bed would have to be - for example would 150litres of soil be enough? Also the bunker is made of concrete (it's a real monster!). Will the plants cling to concrete?
