Passion Flower query

Posted: 09/10/2014 at 09:47

Hi Snow, I had a small passion flower a few years ago,it was in a 12" pot ,either the frost cracked the pot or it broke through the pot into the the most rubbish soil and loved it, anyway after 2 years it was over 20 feet long entirely covered a wall and  an iron fence and was full of delicious orange colored   fruit,,however to move from the house i had to saw it down, as they age they are a very tough plant and with a little control make a wonder full display so  i would keep it protected for the winter the after the last frost into your chosen spot, keep an eye on it you might be surprised at the speed it travels up the wall, you will need Strong wiring and fastenings, have a look at this from Joe Swift    good luck, i now have a new one in full flower beutifull

Hi Dord, i looked on line at the most unusual and really nice  willow fences and shapes which were stunning that can be done ,  however when in Wales on our allotment one of the allotmenteers used willow to border his patch 25 Yds by 20 yds, everything ok until the willow came up in next doors blackcurrants, Willow was then band on the allotments,it can be rover be careful, good luck
