Q. seed pods

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.

This article will help with taking and rooting cuttings:

Summer jasmine is best pruned just after flowering, in late summer or early autumn. Winter jasmine should be pruned in spring, immediately after flowering. On both types you can cut back flowered stems to a strong sideshoot and thin out crowded, crossing or misplaced branches. You should also remove any weak or thin stems. Overgrown vines can be cut back to about 2 feet from the ground.

Q. Carolina and Star Jasmine

I have recently purchased an arbor. I also purchased both Carolina and Star jasmine. I wanted to know if I can grow these two plants together on the same structure? If so, how will I intertwine them so they both grow over the entire structure? I got the two different vines so I would have flowers all through summer instead of just spring with the Carolina jasmine.

Depending on the size of your arbor, you might want to purche another set and plant on both sides of the arbor. This way, they will meet at the top and your arbor will be evenly covered. Don't worry too much about trying to intertwine the stems, they will do this naturally.

Q. What is my Yellow flowered climber

Large climber with dark green leaves and small yellow flowers. Has grown vigorously up and over a pergola. We have just moved in the property. It was covered in little yellow flowers, which have just died off. I have checked all the websites and cannot find what it is. I found something similar that has an orange centre, but these flowers are completely yellow. As you can tell I am a novice gardener and I dont want to kill it !!!!

Q. Jasmine Vine

I have a vine that is 4 yrs old. Neighbors put up new fence, so the plant is a tangled mess and they cut some of the vines. Want to place it back on a chain link. How do I prune it, cut it, etc. without killing it?
