How To Grow Vines Up Brick Walls

Recommended Posts

Welcome.

 

I greet you in the Love and Light.

 

Just wondering if anyone had ideas of how to get a vine to grow up brick walls.

 

The two plants are B. Caap and HBWR. All I've got to work with is a brick wall.

 

I was thinking large metal hook eyelets and feeding them through this in a zig zag fashion

 

Has anyone had any experience or got any ideas in this regard?

 

Love & Light

Attaching a wooden lattice which has a little space between the wall is good but can be expensive too. I have been using ropes as a structure for Vines to grow up until they can rest of some other structure. Here's one I rigged up on the weekend, maybe you could modify this idea?

Neither of these will attach to the cement itself. You could grow something else that will cling first, then grow the caapi up that.

You could also put your eyelets up each end of the wall and run wire or cable horizontally between them, or suspend rope, wire or ghost net from the top. Once they have climbed up a few, equally spaced, vertical ropes, they will quickly spread between them covering the wall.

Bad spelling.

Awesome. I’m going to try the 2x eyelets and run some wire between them. Cheap and cheerful works for me. Thank you for everyone’s input. I’ll report back with how it goes.
