Training a Passion Vine
I'm trying my first passion vine and would like to know how to train it to go up an old wood playset I have.

Use fabric ties or pantyhose to tie stems to the structure until the plant naturally does this on its own. Choose a large stem and bring it as close to a post as possible. When your vine begins climbing up on its own, you will need to prune it regularly. For instance, if the vine begins to get too bushy in one area, trim it back. Likewise, if the vine begins heading in a direction where you do not want it to go, trim back the wayward stem.
