Answer: Hi David,

One of the reasons the passionfruit is not forming fruit may be pollination. If there has been very wet weather or cloudy days then bees do not actively forage for pollen. You may have to hand pollinate if there are not enough bees present in you garden. Try to plant lavender and flowers that attract bees to your garden.
