transplanting trumpet vine shoots???

mandie1001August 5, 2007

Hi, I am wondering if anyone out there knows how to take a shoot off of a trumpet vine and transplant it. I have a large (probably close to 20 years old) vine at my house, and it sends shoots off of it.... which we enjoy since there is plenty of room for it...but I would like to make a few starts to cover some old telephone poles on the property, and some other ugly things. I do know that this plant can be insane, and hard to control.... but that is okay because of where I want to plant them, I dont have a small yard and I dont have neighbors that they would bother. Does anyone know how to reroot the shoots after taking them out of the ground??? Thanks for any help!

Doesn't your vine send out runners/suckers? They should have plenty of roots on them already. Just rip them out of the ground. If yours don't I have plenty that you can have! lol

I have had success rooting tip cuttings. But when I pull volunteers with roots, they die quite quickly?
