I have a silver lace vine that has been a very agressive grower. It is over an arbor in the garden but quickly gets out of control. Winter is approaching and I am wondering how to prune this vine so that it is best suitable for the arbor. The opening in the arbor gets closed off quickly in the summer if I don't trim often. How much should I prune and how often and which branches need to go. Thank You

When the weather is warm, silver lace vine will grow a mile a minute. You can prune it down to ground level without harming it. During the growing season you can freely prune away any vining growth that is getting out of hand. This will keep the arbor open and accessible. Don't be afraid to prune it back - it will respond well to pruning nearly any time of the year.
