Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Passiflora is easy to grow; and during the growing season, the soil should be kept evenly moist, to ensure good flowering and growth. Apply a balanced (10-5-20) fertilizer in the early spring, and then again six to eight weeks later. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.
