We have a metal fence around our yard that is covered with jasmine vines. We need to have the fence painted. If we prune the vines back to the base to allow for painting, will they grow back? The vines have been in place about 10 years and are pruned every year but always cover the fence, even after pruning.
You can prune the Jasmine to 2 feet from the soil surface.
As the vine grows back clip all but the strongest stems and attach these to the fence support.
