I don't like people telling me what to do. So, when listing all my my favorite things and how I was going to go about growing them for myself and my family, I come across the fact that black pepper vines will not grow in my zone (6). Fine. I'll keep it in pots and move it inside and out until I have a greenhouse. I got this vine as a teeny baby from Companion Plants (he has many plants that are difficult to find), and it is ready to be repotted to grow upward and give me lots of peppercorns.
