Cutting Back Jasmine
I have a couple of mature winter jasmine vines that are growing over an old metal gazebo frame that is rusting and falling apart. I plan to build a new gazebo for them to grow on, but first have to remove the old frame, which is where my dilemma lies. The vines are very intertwined with the old frame, so the easiest way to remove it and make room for the new structure would be to cut them way back almost to the trunks. Will they survive this and grow back?
