My passionfruit is suddenly shriveling up and dying. I don’t know the cause, but I do notice that if looks as if something has been stripping the bark near the base. Do you think this could be the cause? What would do this? Is it OK to plant a new passionfruit in the same place? Thank you.

Hi Shona, This sounds like root rot or collar rot, which can happen early in the season when the soil is still too wet and cold. Try planting a little higher as to provide better drainage and as a consequence a warmer soil. You will still need to provide a good mulch to sustain good moisture content for the summer months.

Thanks the Palmers Team
