Should I take all the ties off these star Jasmine now?

Thank you!
Also, the one in the pot isn’t looking amazing… I wondered if pot was too small but it was ok in the pot in cans in and imagine it would’ve been for some time? We have had a right mixed bag of weather lately! This is in a sunnier spot too which I thought they liked. The one in sheltered spot on north side seems to be fairing better at the moment! Thank you!

    Yes, they are only there for transport and prevent damage.

    Yes, remove all the ties which the plants (clematis and star jasmine) came with from the store, and tie them in a fan shaped pattern to the trellis. I use twine — below is any easy how-to video for tying in clematis, which also works for star jasmine. Star jasmine stems will grow quite thick and woody over time, so worth checking again after a year or so in case the tie is too tight, or has degraded and come off.
