I have a beautiful flowering vine on my front porch but don’t know the name of it. It has waxy green leaves and produces wonderful smelling white flowers. When I cut it, I get a milky substance from it. More specifically, I want to plant this vine in my backyard and I have a lot of seed pods. They look like green beans. Can they be used to start the vine? Thank you for your help.

It may be a jasmine of some kind.
Regardless, you should be able to use the seeds to start it, but often, flowering vines like that grown from seed can take years to mature enough to bloom. You would be better off taking cuttings from the vine and rooting them. These will be mature enough to bloom in just a year or two.
