Vines

Most vines will grow best when allowed to climb up a vertical support. When planting a climbing vine near a building, fence, wall or tree, set the plant at least 18" from the structure which will support it. Then gradually train it to grow over to the structure. Garden arbors, trellises and similar supporting structures intended especially for vines usually are in the open.

Prepare the soil as recommended, planting the vine close to the support. Do the same for mesh-type fencing.

Don't let your vines form into a tangle. They should be pruned frequently through the summer, spreading and tying the shoots to keep them to a single "layer" over the support.

Of the flowering vines, clematis is the first choice of the majority of American gardeners. A key essential to getting your clematis plants established is to make sure the root system will be kept cool. A sunny location where roots can grow under a cool covering, such as other perennials or mulch, is ideal. Deep planting-about a half inch deeper than it was grown in the nursery--encourages extra-strong root development and frequent, thorough watering will encourage vigorous growth.

Soak roots for at least an hour before planting.
