Planted about 3 or 4 months ago. Grafted black passionfruit & grafted yellow panama passionfruit of the Nelly Kelly variety. Black passionfruit is growing at a very slow rate - albeit growing. The leaves are small, soft and a pale green and seem to curl. The panama gold seems to be doing better and has grown alot faster. Neither of my plants are sending out tendrils to latch onto my lattice. They are planted in the ground in a position that gets sun for the most part of the day - facing west. They were fertilised with dynamic lifter on planting and have since been fertilised with chicken manure and are regularly watered. Will be laying some mulch over the ground this afternoon. Need some advice.

Hi Jess, You are in the UK, so a sunny spot isn't enough, you need to put them in a glasshouse. See the information on the kew gardens website: http://www.kew.org/ksheets/passion.html My dad'ssecond wife lives in the UK and grows passionfruit vines very successfully in a glasshouse, but they don't flower or fruit. Nelly Kelly is a cooler climate variety than panama gold. Good luck with your garden.
