Cutting back my passion fruit vine (south west Florida-Purple)
My passion fruit vine was planted on a large arbor in early 2017. It grew like crazy and I tried to train it best I could with soft tying to the arbor...it completely covered the arbor top to bottom. This year not only beautiful but it produced approx. 150 wonderful tasting fruit. Now there is a lot of dead leaves and branches under the top layer of leaves and I want to properly cut it back and prepare for this coming year...do I remove the vine from the top of the arbor? At this point there is very little leaves on the sides and bottom of the arbor...mostly only leaves at the top. How do I go about cutting it back? There are some very thick parts of the vine leading all over the place...help?
