I bought a passionflower at the store and it was climbing to a kinda small sircle formed espalier, (similar to the pic above)

But the passion flower is growing so fast and I guess it needs to be repotted with a bigger espalier.. anyone know how can I do that without harming the plant? (the leaves are so fragile)image

    Passion flowers can grow big and I'm sure yours would prefer to be in the ground rather than in a pot. If that isn't possible then use John Innes No 3 in the bigger pot and train the plant up a trellis or some wires. The advice on the RHS site is always sound and this covers climbers and the training thereof. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=463

    I had to replace the trellis that mine was growing up last year, the only way I could do it was cut the existing trellis, slide it out gently and then tied the Passion flower to its new trellis with that rubber coated plant wire. It survived thankfully and seems to be doing well again this year
