Thanks..being lazy and not googling, can you share how to train them? Simply wind the vines clockwise and let the barbs stick into the twine? How many twists?

They'll naturally climb clockwise on whatever you give them to climb on, which can be anything from a small limb that fell off of a nearby tree, a pitchfork handle, telephone pole etc.  The main concern is that it has a rough/porous surface that the climbing hooks can sink into.
