How do I get store bought vine to transfer to trellis?

15 years ago

I am new to vines, in the sense of purchasing and transferring them to grow where you want them to grow.

I purchased an awesome wrought iron 5 ft tall trellis that basically is a circle of bars going upwards. I can fit a large ceramic planter inside the trellis, but my question is, once I pick out the type of vine that I want, and bring it home, how do I get the plant to adhere to the wrought iron bars. In other words, when you purchase a store bought vine, it has a wood temporarily? to hold the plant up. Do I leave that part alone or remove it once inside the trellis?

Seeds are NOT an option for me, as I do not want to wait for growth, so purchasing a plant ready to climb is my only option. Thanks
