Trumpet vines are pretty resilient. Many people are looking for ways to stop them from growing and spreading, so don't worry too much about transplanting it. If for some reason it doest transplant well, you're likely to see plenty of new suckers growing up in the spot it used to inhabit. I would suggest doing it in the early spring before too much growth occurs. Cut it down to a manageable size for transplanting. Don't cut it all the way down, however, as it's better to leave a few feet of the leafy top-growth. When you dig out the root ball, make it large and try to keep as much of the dirt attached to the roots as possible. Baby your vine this season as it works to re-establish itself.

What time of year should I transplant a baby shoot from a Trumpet vine? How do I do it?

I have never had a problem with my trumpet vine not growing. It is the most aggressive thing I've ever seen. It flowers profusely. I have mine in mostly shade. I found that it is not easily moved. If you do not completely get all the root, it will grow back. It also sends up shoots all around it. So, just be sure where you plant it is where you want it permanently.
I want to give a friend some baby trumpet vines. How do I get the runners to start?

Seriously!? You cannot kill this plant - it's roots send shoots up everywhere. Just dig a shoot up - the rest of your yard will thank you.
