Q.Have Massive Honey Suckle Vines Growing Over A Wooden Fence That Is Beginning To Break Down.

Zone nampa, id 83686 | Anonymous added on September 21, 2021 | Answered

planning to replace current wood fence, which is original to the house since 1998, with vinyl fencing. purchased the house in 2016. the vines were very puny then. each year that i have been here i have cared diligently for the vines. they are gorgeous now, extremely fragrent, had a little bit of die off in one front section this year, I really don’t want to loose them. can they be separated from the current wood fence and folded back on the ground and remounted/directed to grow on the vinyl fence again. would it be too much of a shock to them to try and remount them, can they even grow on vinyl fencing. hate to loose them, but know that i may just have to cut them all back. if main vines back to ground level, can they regenerate/regrow. your assistance would be appreciated.
