I planted jasmine two years ago and now it is trying to grow. I love to smell it but now can I train it to at least go over my fence?, or should I get something else to train it on. Also, what is a fast,growing vine that I can plant and train? it could even be a disease resistant rose. My jasmine has leaves that are spotted, and yellow. What could be the problem?

Jasmine can take a year to establish but once it does, it should grow lush and thick. Prune it down now to encourage lots of new stems and flowers and to remove the spotted and yellowing leaves. It will grow up and out with just a little coaxing. Lady Bank's roses are great for training along and up a fence. They are relatively disease resistant. Or Kerria is a fast growing flowering, vining plant that you might like. Enjoy!
