Transplanting Perennial Sweet Pea Vine

I want to know the best way to transplant a sweet pea plant.  The vine is approximately 28 years old.

You can transplant your sweet pea in late summer or early spring.  Northern gardeners may prefer an early spring transplanting to allow plants to re-establish before winter.  Southern gardeners may want to transplant in fall giving plants time to establish before the heat of summer.  When ready to transplant, cut the plant back to about a foot, dig, and divide into several pieces.   Plant the divisions in a properly prepared site.  Water well and mulch the soil to keep the roots cool and moist during the summer and insulated in the winter.  Northern gardeners may want to cover late fall transplants with straw, or evergreen boughs once the ground freezes.  This added insulation will help the newly transplanted sweet pea through the winter.
