Hallo all. My problem this time is: If you have seen photos of my datcha you will see an ugly water tank to the right hand side of the photo that I want to disguise one way or another...looking around Goy I have had an idea: in front of the tank are some breeze blocks, now if I put elephant grass in them will it grow in breeze blocks?. If so that could be the end of my problem. Thanks for any answers



I dont really know other than to suggest give it ago and see if you like the effect.

I think I would put up a trellis and grow things up that. You don't want the plants too near the oil tank or when you get a delivery of oil they could get damaged.

I agree with moongrowe .Putting a trellis around it would be a far better option and much prettier as there are so many lovely climbers especially if you can get an evergreen like trachlespemum jasminoides which in time will cover the whole trellis and as a bonus it is very fragrant.(providing it willget the sun)
