we live in a rowhome in center city philly with absolutely no yard.. just a shared walkway.
i tied twine to a nail on our 3rd floor window frame and its been climbing like crazy.
the rhizome, Mt. Hood, was planted in a very low raised bed on concrete and has got to be less than a foot from the end of the twine at this point.
its a pretty hood setup, which i why i chose Mt. Hood, but its growing like crazy.
i water and add compost to the raised bed twice week and so far so good.
i also have a Magnum i planted in a small wooden basket lined with a trash bag.
i must say it loves to climb the gate on my window.
and it looks really healthy in person.
im sure within a month it will cover the window completely... hopefully
