I planted this vine about 2-3 years ago. It didn't do anything
until this year, when it went totally ape. It's crawling along
my clothes lines and falling over other plants.
I had been training it up the garage wall and along the front
of the wall with those clear plastic discs that you stick on the wall
and thread twisties through, but it has become so heavy that it tears
the discs off the wall, falls down, and crushes plants below it.
I can't go to the expense and trouble of having a heavy-
duty trellis built up against the garage wall jus tto salvage
this crazed vine, though I like the flowers; that's why I planted it
in the first place. .
Nor can I make holes in the garage roof for anchors to hold the
vine and eventually let it sprawl (more or less) across the
Should I have a worker hoist something heavy onto the garage
roof to serve as anchor? If so, what?
Should I cut back the vine to manageable proportions?
(Sounds dubious, looking at it, but...)
Is there a solution out there that's so obvious, I'm missing it?
What to do, what to do?
