Hello. I have been given a young passionfruit plant in a pot, probably measuring 60cm in height. I’ve read the comprehensive info above on growing and maintaining the plant but am unsure what I should do with it until the recommended planting time in spring. At present, it’s in a conservatory and doing very well indeed. Please can you guide me as to the best conditions and location for my plant until summer? I live in the Hutt Valley and we don’t get many frosts… Thanks so much! Chris.

Hi Chris,

You can plant the passionfruit now if you wish, but of course, they do not like the winter so much which it is why it advises on spring. The main thing you have to be watchful of is frosts as these will damage or kill the plant especially if it is so young.

If the plant is doing well in the conservatory I would leave it there if you can, it will be thriving from the warm conditions. It will not grow much over the winter so you shouldn’t need to worry about re-potting it unless the pot is very small, then potting it in something larger will help keep the plant healthy. The benefit of leaving it in the conservatory is that it will be protected from any harsh weather conditions.
