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.

I understand...... just being mischievous again.

Just switched on the vacuum cleaner.... dead as a do-do,  checked the fuse, nothing wrong there....shall I be happy or sad?

Btw, I'm not 90 either.

OL - Trying to work out if I'm been complimented or not.

"I haven't got big enough supports and haven't snipped the tendrils but I have been cutting them A LOT and every morning I seem to get a load more".

Btw, those should smell really nice, as the purples verging into blues usually are the most scented.
