How to Grow Flowering Vines in Containers

Vines can be a great addition to any landscape. Gardening tips help you select which vines will work best for your purposes. Pull up a comfy chair and a nice cup of tea and enjoy your vining flower garden.

Many compact climbers, such as jasmine and some clematis, are well suited to living in pots. All they need is a good-sized container, suitable support and regular watering and feeding.

When to Start: Spring
At Their Best: Summer
Time to Complete: 1-1/2 hours

Materials Needed:

  • jasmine or other climber
  • a large frost-proof pot
  • broken clay pot pieces
  • potting soil
  • trellis
  • twine
  • gravel or pebbles to mulch
  • watering can

Before You Plant

Put pieces of broken clay pot into the base of the container, then cover with a layer of soil. Position the support at the back of the container and then pack some soil around it to help hold it firmly in place. Make sure that there’s enough room for the plant roots to spread out.
