|Creeping fig usually climbs without any assistance at all. If the stems are moving out into the yard, they are seeking sunshine. You may have to coax them into growing up the wall by driving a stick or stake into the ground near the wall and typing the runners to the stake. As soon as the stems make contact with the wall they will attach themselves with little peds. When this happens, just slide the stick or stake out of the ground and the plant should maintain its attachment to the wall and continue to grow upwards. Best wishes with your creeping fig.
