I have a bank (5m wide by 2m high) that has recently been cleared of vegetation. Would Virginian Creeper be suitable for providing cover on this bank, and if suitable, how far apart should I space the plants along the base, and how long do you think it would take to climb to the top of the bank?

There are a number of ground cover options that could work on a bank depending on the soil type and aspect. ie clay soil, north-facing sunny site. Virginia creeper is deciduous so it will loose it leaves so not ideal if you want permanent, evergreen ground cover and can easily take over if they are not controlled by trimming, or pruning. I would recommend a native ground cover such as Copromsa repens ‘Poor knights’ or Coprosma acerosa, C. ‘Kirkii’. These are hardy and versatile. Some bear fruit which brings in the birds and go for smaller dwarf green flax.
