CARING & GROWING:
Passion flower likes moderately fertile, well-drained but reliably moist soils. It will thrive in any soil type and is not fussy about acidity or alkalinity. Passion flower tends to flower particularly well when roots are restricted, such as in a container or pathside border. When planting in a container use good quality peat-free compost.
Watering and feeding
Water passion flowers freely during the growing season especially container-grown specimens to ensure that they don’t dry out. Water them more sparingly during the winter, allowing the compost surface of container grown specimens to begin to dry out between waterings.
