The Q&A Archives: Training Vines

Question: When and how should I prune my perennial morning glory, Ipmoea Acuminata?

Answer: Pruning is an opportunity to train and control your vine. Use a sharp tool and remove dead, damaged and diseased wood. Make your cuts just above a live bud or nealy flush with the stem. Once you've removed all the unsightly growth, trim the remaininghealthy vines to bring the plant under control. As with any flowering plant, wait until after it has finished blooming before pruning. You can keep your Ipmoea looking attractive by pinching out young growth during the summer months.
