  • I bought one some years ago and planted against a wall. I had mine not fully in the sun and cut it back regularly. When it became bigger I placed a wooden plant rack on the wall to lead the plant. Within 2 years it bared many lovely fruits.

  • lots of great answer here… i hope you have an abundance of fruit

  • set up somewhere it can climb like the back fence, I’ve been told it does better in the colder climates.

  • I’d also like to know as I’ve tried several times with no success. Thank you

  • And now i am going to plant one of my own, interesting!!

  • Some great tips here thanks.

  • No I dont know how to grow one, but have read the comments, which are very helpful and will be planting one when I get my own place.

  • ours grew like wildfire and was on the shaded side of the house, it got some morning sun and that was it,

  • my nanna just planted hers, watered it and it grew well

  • full sun, space to climb and food should keep it going strong.

  • it will look after itself, just put in in the ground and watch it grow, it doesn’t need full sun but needs a fence or trellis to grow over

  • nice sunny warm place and a place where it can climb

  • Was told by a qualified gardener to dig a largish hole and place liver or lambs fry in the bottom and then passionfruit on top of this. Worked for me.

  • We had ours initially in a shady spot and it hardly grew, moved it to a sunny spot and it took off,

  • your local garden centre will be able to help you on care for it.
