Care Guide

Planting Advice for Passiflora Passion Flowers:

  • Passion flowers tends to bloom particularly well when their roots are restricted by a container or path side border.
  • When planting in a container, use John Innes No 3 potting compost, or any good quality compost.
  • Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen.
  • Water your potted plants well, then dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plants from their pots and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your selected plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling) and firm in the soil with your hand, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.


 Aftercare Advice for your Passion Flowers:

  • Water well and regularly for the first few months. With a robust and rapidly growing root system, your plants will establish rapidly.
  • Once planted, keep the area free of competing weeds.
  • Apply a generous layer of mulch around the base of the plants after planting and thereafter annually.

 Pruning Advice for Passiflora

  • Little pruning is needed apart from removing any branches that are dead, damaged or diseased.
