Answer: Dear Margaret,
Sorry to hear your passionfruit is not bearing fruit as it should do. Passionfruit vines rely on insects for pollination and sometimes adverse weather conditions can interfer with the pollination process by upseting the bees or by ruining the pollen. What you can do is to hand pollinate a few flowers to ensure at least some fruit. Passionfruit requires a warm sunny spot in your garden to grow well, so make sure your vine require sun for most of the day. Ample watering during the warm summer months is also a must. Fertilise with a well balanced fertiliser such as Thrive Granular Citrus food to make sure that your vine receives the necessary nutrients it needs to give green healthy foliage and juicy fruit.
I hope with all this care your vine will produce heaps of fruit for you this year.
