I am a master’s student. I’m doing a comparison of foliage cover by various vines and creepers and how much shade they provide on building rooftop to reduce surface temperatures.
I need a biweekly or monthly growing pattern and sizes/measurement of a few vines. I am targeting trumpet vine, virginia creeper, grapevine and honeysuckle. The plants are to be grown in toronto. Diagrams and pictures will be most helpful.
Thank you for contacting the Toronto Master Gardeners about your research of the foliage cover provided by vines. Regrettably, what you are asking for is outside our mandate, which is to provide advice to home gardeners in the Toronto area, to help them to solve problems in their gardens.
We wish you all the best in your studies.
