Nice I wish I could get mine to flower and fruit. Anyone got any hints for passionfruit in Perth?

I thought my first problem was that I had two incompatible vines, but that doesn't seem to be the case. Passion fruit vines are self sterile.

Maybe add some Epsom salt (we do a tea spoon to a watering can 9 litre) next time you fertilise the vine, that helps with flowing here for a lot of stuff like citrus fruits.

Cheers

One of mine which is a Panama produces heaps of fruit, my others only one or two year, I have NFI why but the beter producer is in slightly better soil ad may get some drainage form the leach drain so maybe nutrients are the key.

I'd try the epsom salts and may be some wood ash for potassium if your soil is not already too alkaline.

A lot has happened since the last post. We planted lots of stuff... Bush lemon, finger lime, rosellas, more passion fruit, surrounded our patio area with lots of herbs, mango trees and relocated one lemon from the aquaponics to the dirt garden. We also started a rock feature garden but it is to wet and the ground to soft o get more materials in.
