virginia creeper

Isolda Heavey asked 7 years ago

I have to train a large Virginia creeper up a wall but I can’t screw anything into the wall as it is hollow (I think it’s externally insulated). Is there any clever method for attaching something to the wall that the climber can then use?

Virginia creeper has its own little suction pads to attach itself to a wall and needs no support at all.

Simply pin it at ground level within some stones or hair-pin shape wires and let it get on with it.

It might be worth enquiring if the insulated wall is robust enough to support a climber when mature!
