    I've read it takes about nine month from seed, so hopefully mine will flower and fruit this year.

    I grew one that survived outside for 5yrs until we had a bad 5/6 weeks of up to -16deg in the winter of 2010/11, that was just too much for it, and we found that squirrels have a taste for them. Our plant was in the ground,sheltered from the worst of the winds, on a south facing wall, we would have replaced it but some jersey lillies that had been planted years previously decided to surface and flower, so we never did replant the passion flower, sadly...

    I grew Passiflora caerulea outside on a sheltered wall in Leicestershire that lasted about 5 years, a hard winter killed it off, doubt it would grow up here outside though. I remember seeing cottages in Swanage covered in them, some with bright orange fruits, no idea what species they were though.

    Just potted up 18 edulis which were overwintered in kitchen.

    Will try some in garden but will bring some in house in winter.

    Maypops in greenhouse yet to surface.
