Prob a vine type cause the gardener who gave it to me said it grew very well up their garage trellis and they had it for over ten yrs. They cut it back to ground level and we dug out the root ball (approx 2' dia ball) last nite. I have it soaking in a dirt/mud solution now. Some of the roots are extending out from the ball.
I want to plant it near a 15' tall tree in a corner of the front fenced yard..It will not get as much sun as it had but should get 3-4 hrs now and more when it gets higher than the fence...can I cut the rootball in two and start two plants? Can I bury the rootball up to the tops and merely water it till fall and see how it does in the spring? And separate it then? or best to keep it intact?
Anything else I can do?...it will be in good garden soil that I have built up over several years i.e.compost, dirt, etc.
