PLANT PAS­SION­FRUIT

The Napier Mail - - WHAT’S ON -

I know they only have a few good years in them be­fore they turn up their toes, but who can re­sist th­ese tangy sub­trop­i­cal beau­ties? Pas­sion­fruit like free-drain­ing, light soil and a shel­tered spot and can be trained along fences, trel­lises and up ve­ran­das.Make sure you dig in plenty of com­post when plant­ing, and feed them with a gen­eral bal­anced fer­tiliser when plant­ing and then twice through­out the grow­ing sea­son. Vines planted now should fruit within 9-18 months.
