fragrant climbers (1 reply)
Please can someone advise whether I can grow fragrant climbers in 6inch deep troughs against the trellis ? if in a planter what is the minimum depth it should be to give clematis and climbers the best chance of survival. I have a path all the way along the trellis so cannot be planted in to the ground - any advice gratefully received. I do have a couple of clematis in these troughs at the moment but not too sure it is really doing them any favours!
To be honest I am not sure 6 inches is deep enough for a climber like a honeysuckle or Clematis, it would be fine for sweetpeas or similar, I would be more inclined to go with a deeper tub or similar. I used to have a half barrel with a clematis montana in, mind you we had cut the bottom off and it sent its roots into the ground.
