Passion flower cutting wont root

Looks like you're another victim of the dreaded 'Auto-correct' Aym   -  scraping off some of the Cambrian Layer would be a bit excessive and not very helpful 


What I'm sure Aym tried to say is the 'cambium layer' - the layer between the 'bark' and the 'wood'.

Have given up now Pansy  ... drinking coffee and finding jobs to do ... I've got the dentist this afternoon so that's a few hours 'wasted' so I might as well get ahead now ..........

Morning folks  
No, my bodyclock hasn't woken me up - the phone did   it was the automated alarm system at the farm shop where OH works - he's a key holder - I couldn't let him cycle up there on his own to see what had triggered the alarm so I pulled some clothes on and we drove up there ... no sign of any intruders or anything ................. but of course we're both WIDE AWAKE now ...


there was a beautiful sunrise tho'

You can cut it hard back to keep it within bounds - it will recover

If you layer a shoot now you'll have a plant ready to plant out next spring.

I find that layering a growing shoot is the best way to propagate passionflowers - here is a video with a pretty good demonstration of what to do
