How to Transplant a Climbing Plant from a Pot

How to Transplant a Climbing Plant from a Pot

What to do when your climbing plant gets too big for its pot

A climbing plant is an excellent option if we want to take advantage of a vertical surface. There are numerous varieties to choose from–anything from the vigorous Virginia creeper with dense foliage to annual sweet peas that tend to climb easily and are so elegant looking. We can have them in pots on the ground or even hanging from a roof, but, one thing for sure, the time will come when the plant will need to be transplanted due to its growth. Then too, there are times when the branches and leaves become so voluminous that they become a bother.
So, the time comes to transplant the vine or climbing plant to a larger space where it can develop without difficulty. The best option is to plant it in soil near to a pergola, wall, or fencing so that the plant can climb onto these structures. A habitual mistake is planting too close to whatever will be its support. It should be planted some 40 – 50 centimeters (16 – 20 inches) from the support so that the soil surrounding the roots can receive enough rainwater.

At the time of transplanting we carry out the following steps:

⦁ Remove any weeds from the area in which we will plant our climbing plant and apply a bit of fertilizer.


⦁ Dig a hole some 16 inches away from the support. Mix some organic matter with top soil and cover the sides and bottom of the hole with it. Water the vine one hour before transplanting. Place the pot with the plant in the hole in order to verify that the hole is big enough. The top of the dirt in the pot needs to be flush with the top of the soil, except for clematis which you plant 5 cm (2 inches) lower.

⦁ Carefully take the plant out of the pot and place it in the hole, gently leaning it toward the support. Pound some stakes into the hole also leaning them towards the support and trying not to damage the roots.

  • ⦁ Backfill the hole with dirt and organic matter and press down firmly. Water the plant generously. Align the stalks with the stakes, directing them towards the support, and tie them to the stakes. Distribute a generous layer of mulch around the plant but without touching the stalks.
