The flowers on my Passion flower did not form properly this year. I have cut it down and dug it up and potted it and new healthy shoots are growing again . Aim to try it in another position next year
My Passion flower has had two very good flowering summers and this summer lots of fruit have formed and were turning orange...I've jut been away for a week and come back to find the plant is dying/died....it's completely wilted and looking very sorry for itself! all my other plants are very well, even my pots, so I don't know what's happened to the Passion flower?
I gave it a good water on return and have started to take fruit off to see if that makes a difference, but still looking pretty dead this morning. Is there anything else I can do? Such a shame as it is a big plant now and covering a large area of my garden.
I bought two this year and planted the common one in the ground and the lilac coloured one in a big pot. Funny enough the one in the pot has grown a lot lot more than the one in the ground. And it has formed two fruits as well. It isnt much but for a young plant is not bad. The flowers are stunning but they only last a couple of days.
Can I grow a Passion Flower successfully in a pot?
I have had my passionflower for 3 years & this year is the first time that it has bloomed, but with only one flower. Do you think it will bloom better next year?
Hi Soolar,a few years ago i planted a p/f in a good big heavy terracotta pot about a couple of years later or so it had escaped the bottom of the pot and went into the worst soil/rubble in the garden and spread over 30 feet on an iron fence it was stunning ,i hardly ever watered it,strange plants Passions and a good pot is the way.
Ps I had to saw it down when when it became just unmanageable, i have one now and i keep it a reasonable size in a Pot .i really dont know whats wrong with Santys Good Luck,
Experiencing the same problem exactly. Pot planted in same position and at same time as my grape but seems to retain more water. Will have a root around the pot for weevils and post results. Cheers
We have had some cold nights past few days - could just be going into winter mode and will pop up again next year?
Exactly the same here. Two plants side by side in pots. Both have been treated the same and flowered well then suddenly one has wilted. I have not yet checked for weevils but I have cut it right back so will see if it survives.
