The Trumpet Vine does not like too much fertilizer. Even if it is near your lawn, it gets the fertilizer! My husbands uncle had the same problem for 4 years and last year he moved it,didn't give it any feritilzer at all and It is full of blooms!

try root pruning,take a sharp shovel and go about 10in from the main trunck and chop the soil a few times.This will make the vine stay in one area better and stronger too.
