Passiflora, can I plant it in the ground?
Bought a passiflora at Chatsworth yesterday, Assume it's caerulea but there's no label.
Was told it was hardy but I have my doubts for Yorkshire winters.
It will be in full sun but also full exposure to wind and frost etc.
I have reasonable but clay based soil, which I believe would suit it.
Ive read it can be cut right down in Autumn, so If grown in a pot could it be cut free from its support and taken in for summer?
If I keep it in a pot what size and soil / compost?
Although I'd prefer to plant it in the ground but I am open to your suggestions, experience and advice.
If it is caerulea, it should be hardy.
Mine does fine [ same place as you ] on a sunny wall, only pruned to stop it taking over.
When you don't even know who's in the team
Mine got left in its pot (cut right back) outside all winter this year. Admittedly it was a mild one for Yorkshire but it's popped back just fine.
Thanks PD and Clari. It's not going to have the protection of a wall, more middle of the garden. Might sink a pot and decide near t time for winter.
Sensible idea Mrs. G!
