Training a vine on arbor post
Hello - We just finished building a IG pool in our backyard, and an arbor was added overlooking the yard. I planted 2 purple leaf honeysuckle vines on each 8" arbor post. I'm looking for the best way to train these vines up. I have tied heavy-duty fishing line right now, but I'm not that fond of the look. You can see the fishing line on all sides of the post. Is there a better way? OR - after the vine becomes more mature, will the limbs become stronger and I can remove the fishing line over time.
Attaching a few pics. The gray conduit is on the backside of the arbor posts. I still want to paint those brown to blend in a bit better.
