Pruning passionfruit - Had my 2nd passionfruit ripen and fall from the vine :-P the first was just larger than a grape and had one seed in it LOL and the second was slightly larger; about the size of a walnut! But was full of seeds. Was a little tart but I like them like that...2764 days 12hrs
Pruning passionfruit - Hey Amanda, I wasn't saying that growing anything was bad; I just don't so I can find the fruit and that when I fertilise it goes to the passionfruit vine and not weeds etc.... I was more trying to point out that disturbing the roots by forking in..2773 days 5hrs

Pruning passionfruit - Hi Au0rey, The Nelly Kelly (the second lot of photos is all one vine) I'll take some more photos and post later; I actually thought I'd killed it with kindness last year..... and removing too many leaves! but it's come back. I've trained it alon..2777 days 2hrs
