If planting in the ground:
Before planting your climber, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the trellis base. Water well during the first year until well established.
Dig a hole 2X the width of the rootball and deep enough for the root collar to sit just above the top of the hole when in position. Make sure to position so that the trellis is aligned as you desire.
Once positioned, backfill with soil and firm every few shovels to ensure there are no air gaps.
Try to encourage the plant to climb up structures by tying in or entwining around a trellis, arch or any feature of a the house that the plant can get a grip on. Once settled, removed the cane and allow to climb unaided. If planting in the a container :
Fill container with soil mix to the desired level. Then follow the steps above. You will not need to dig a hole quite so wide as you are planting into fresh soil.
