The Q&A Archives: Vines

Question: I would like to grow some vines against my house, but there is only concrete on the foundation of the house. There is no soil. Are there vines that don't need soil? I believe I've seen some like that.

Would you please let me know?

Thank you.

Answer: All living plants need soil! If there is nothing but concrete where you want to grow vines, you can still grow them by planting them in containers. You can use potting soil to fill the containers. Don't forget to water the containers to keep your vines healthy.
