Training a Passiflora

Hi there,

I have built this trellis to help screen out fences and overlooking houses! I hope to train a Passiflora caerulea over it and looking for some advice about the best way to do this. 

The plant will come up from the left hand side - should I grow up the left hand side first and train shoots across the wires or train to the middle then kind of espalier the shoots out both ways? Or should I just let it make its own way!?

any advice gratefully received

amy 😊

    It should find its own way, just help it out when necessary by weaving stray long shoots behind the trellis or other bits of itself, or into any gaps.
