Oh yes, they will keep for a couple of years at least. Kept in an airtight tin in the garage, probably longer.

Now I'm going to watch Brazil get another drubbing.

I unashamedly use 'Bug Clear', chicky.....it's systemic and remains effective for  six weeks. It's about as environmentally as you can get, if you follow the instructions to the letter.  

I need hugs too....

Growing them by the cordon method (no need top bother yourself with that at the mo) you do remove all tendrils and compensate by tying them in by hand.

Yours need to retain some tendrils to enable them to climb, so best remove those in the vicinity & about to entwine your flower stems.
