Fastest growing annual vine for container??
Hi! I have very limited experience growing things in containers (or should I say limited luck!)
Anyway, I have a cedar box that is about 18" by about 9 feet long. The soil is about 18" deep. It is on my deck...zone 6...gets sun from morning until about 3pm (well one end gets sun until 3pm, the other end until about 5pm, since it is so long).
I just put 5 metal trelises in the back of the box and would like to (very quickly) grow some vines to fill them in to add alittle privacy to our deck.
What would be the best vine to grow here? From seed? or from a nursery?
Do I need to add string to a store-bought trelis, or should things crawl up them ok?
Thanks for any help you can give...I'm getting really anxious to get something in there!
Oh, one last thing, the sun will hit the box from the "back" of the trelises (the side that doesn't face our deck)...once the vines fill in, will this be an issue as far as shading?
