Passiflora help

Lerch19Lerch19 Posts: 4

Hi all,

I'm after a little bit of advice/guidance with a Passion flower (passiflora-caerulea). We bought it from a garden center about 2 months ago, planted it fine, had the first bloom of flowers (around 4 in total), then noticed there were 2 little fruits.

Am I right in thinking this will follow the norm and not produce any more flowers this year as it will focus on growing the fruits? If i remove the fruits, can I expect it to flower again? Is there anything I can do to encourage flowering now or in the future?

It's currently growing along a W/SW facing fence so gets shade up until 12 then sun afterwards.

I've tried the usual google on this but couldn't really find anything.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
