Create a tropical feel to your garden with the lush Passionfruit vine. Glossy green leaves, beautiful large flowers and edible fruits, one plant easily covers an unsightly fence - able to grow up to six metres in one summer! Undeniably one of the most popular fruiting climbers in Australia, whether it's the fact that you can't make a pav without passionfruit, or its ability to quickly cover an unsightly fence, this dual purpose climber from South America is an Aussie backyard favourite. Seed is slow to germinate so soak in water for 48 hours before planting. Its worth the wait though because you'll have fruit in under 12 months once they are up and running! Protect from frost while young.
Presoak seeds in hot water overnight and requires bottom heat of 25+ to germinate. Prefers a well drained position enriched with organic matter and slow release pelleted fertiliser. Keep well watered during the warmer months. Protect from frost while young. Provide a strong trellis to support the ample growth. Fertilise in spring and autumn. Prune in early spring by one third. Seed grown so will not sucker from root stock. Self pollinating.
