Soil Preparation: Amend soil with compost to aid in drainage and give the vine some nutrition to help with root development. Planting: Dig a hole in a sunny location with well-drained soil. Place vine in hole so that the root ball is level within the bed. Cover with soil and tamp down to remove air pockets. Watering: Water thoroughly at planting. White actively growing, water frequently and thoroughly so that water will reach the roots. Mulching: Mulch to keep the soil cool and to prevent the soil from drying out.
Cut back in winter to keep vine in bounds.
