I was given a little passionfruit plant. And was wondering if anyone has anything ideas on how to look after it and were I should put it once I take it out of its pot ?

  • lots of great answer here… i hope you have an abundance of fruit



  • set up somewhere it can climb like the back fence, I’ve been told it does better in the colder climates.



  • I’d also like to know as I’ve tried several times with no success. Thank you



  • And now i am going to plant one of my own, interesting!!



  • Some great tips here thanks.



  • No I dont know how to grow one, but have read the comments, which are very helpful and will be planting one when I get my own place.



  • ours grew like wildfire and was on the shaded side of the house, it got some morning sun and that was it,



  • my nanna just planted hers, watered it and it grew well



  • full sun, space to climb and food should keep it going strong.



  • it will look after itself, just put in in the ground and watch it grow, it doesn’t need full sun but needs a fence or trellis to grow over



  • nice sunny warm place and a place where it can climb



  • Was told by a qualified gardener to dig a largish hole and place liver or lambs fry in the bottom and then passionfruit on top of this. Worked for me.



  • We had ours initially in a shady spot and it hardly grew, moved it to a sunny spot and it took off,



  • your local garden centre will be able to help you on care for it.



  • Somewhere it can climb, ours pretty much looks after itself, and the passionfruits taste great :)
