The best time to plant a passion fruit vine is in the spring season. Before planting, prepare your soil by incorporating compost and chicken manure to an area around one to two meters wide. Dig a hole twice as wide and just as deep as the root ball, gently tease the roots, plant the vine and water well. Mulch around the base with sugarcane, bark chips or pea straw, but don’t let it build up around the stem. Passion fruit vines can also be grown in large pots as long as they have an adequate support structure.
Passion fruit vines require regular watering, especially when the vine is young and when it’s flowering and fruiting. Water deeply a couple of times a week, depending on weather conditions and climate. Remember to spread your watering over the entire root system, not just around the stem of the vine.
