When bought the jasmines had three bamboo canes with the vines wrapped around. When we plant, these in the garden, do we unravel the vines? Or do we leave the bamboo canes in? I want the jasmine plants to grow tall and widen out to give coverage....should I get a trellis? How do you unravel the vines and then how do I get them to grow in a trellis? Grateful for any advice. Thanks , Linda

Since the jasmine plants are already growing on the bamboo canes, it's best to leave the canes and just push them into the ground or lean them against the trellis so the vines can continue growing upwards.
A trellis is a great way to grow jasmine- they need something to climb up, so you'll either have to provide a trellis or some other structure for them to climb. Simply plant them just in front of the trellis and they will find it. If they seem to be having trouble, gently thread the tips of the vines through the trellis. https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/jasmine/growing-jasmine-plants.htm
