Hi Folks, I am working on the side area at the moment. Gravel, paving, a raised bed and there will be some large pots over time. There is a side wall of a metal shed I was hoping to hide with a climber/ ivy, does any one know if an ivy will stick to a metal shed. Thanks inadvance.

Yes it sticks to any thing but watch out as it gets under the  roof and lifts it we had to replace  the  roof costly business try and stop it near the roof

We replaced it with virgina creepr no problem now maye that would be better.

Clara, thanks for that. I did not think virgina creeper would work at all. That was why I asked the question, way to go so, thanks.

It shouldnt be a problem but you could always tack a few bits to the shed or tack on some chicken wire to give it a helping hand :O)
