agree  EdithK: vine not bine

agree  Paul Kachur: No, it's a bine, see Wikipedia on hops. "Although frequently referred to as the hop "vine", it is technically a bine; unlike vines, which use tendrils, suckers, and other appendages for attaching themselves, bines have stout stems with stiff hairs to aid
8 hrs

agree  Helen Shiner: Yes, bine is technically correct, though vine might be more comprehensible - depends on how technical the text is.
9 hrs

agree  RegineMac: I looked up a few poems and they always referred to vines. In my opinion, bines may be too technical for a novel.
