@jeatacake the first and only flower but was a new plant as I lost the original over winter. Had to get rid of another 50+ pots this week with bulbs and tubers that didn’t do anything. Must be over 300 pots I’ve lost since last winter 🤯

Wow, that's incredible 😢 I know I won't have much, if anything overwintering in the greenhouse later this year, after almost everything died in there last winter, even tender plants I'd had for many years 😔

Such a elegant looking flower, love it. Sorry to hear you lost two plants. What you could do if you really like a plant and your afraid you might lose it over the winter is to take a cutting that way you'll always have one in reserve

@alan1111 thank you Alan 😀 I should have protected them all but as they’d been ok the previous year I got complacent 😔 will be taking cuttings from this one though!!! 👍🏻

@jeatacake great that it’s survived the winter! They’re always a risk leaving outdoors aren’t they 😜

3w
comment
ublaszko

Perhaps I cut it too far back where the stem was too woody but I remember it was green so it should have been alive. And the winter was pretty mild so it's not the frost. I don't mind that I've lost it because it's only £3 in Wilko but obviously now is not the time to go and replace it. I will use my many annual climbers to fill the gap and get a new passionflower next spring. ☺

comment
kez001uk

@ublaszko I swear they just decide if they wanna grow or not, regardless of what we do to them 😂 and you do have plenty of seed-grown climbers to take its place 😁
