My only gardening area available is right next to our stucco home. Therefore, we have 2 4x5 boxes, 1 3x5 box and 1 3x7 box that we've planted. The last box has the longest sun time is right next to the home. I've noticed that the plants in the last boxes seem to be smaller and dryer than the others and I'm thinking it may be due to the heat radiating off the home. Any ideas? This probably won't be a problem during spring/fall seasons but I'm wondering how to rectify this issue during the summer months. Thanks!

We have stucco to and I know what you mean, it really heats up and holds the heat for a while. How close is the box ? is it right up close to the wall? the only thing I can think of is maybe hanging something like a tarp to deflect the heat.

Thanks for the suggestion. The only other idea I have (hate hanging something off the side of the house) is laying something like full size sheets of plywood against the home. Don't know how well that would work but I've got to shield my plants from the heat.

Maybe a trellis of some heat-loving climber?

+1 this was my first thought also. Have you put a thermometer out there to to see just how hot it does get? That information would be good to know in choosing what to do.

We planted bouganvalia and hardenbergia before on the fence connected to the house and it did not do well in the extreme heat. I think the stucco holds the heat even after the sun goes down it if you stand next to it you can feel the heat radiating off the side of the house. You could try a wooden trellis of lattice mounted about a few inches from the wall . Maybe if it is not right on the wall with an air space between and the wooden trellis would absorb water to lower temp. We have had good success with bower vine on the gazebo and never water it , so you may want to consider that.
