    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.
