    Hi there Dee. I'm liking your Passion flower. Is it a hardy variety ? We have one in the garden, but to me it lacks colour. Nice plums, btw :D
    Cheers...freddy.

    Hi Guys, The Passionflower is..Amethyst Lavender Lady. Its not hardy Freddy:( Another Plant to protect :doh: Eeee my Life :D
    Bad Luck with your Banana Bob, Its Frustrating when you cant find the critters thats eating your plants, I was gonna look for your thread on how to Overwinter mine, but you still haven't got your threads back yet :skp: Shocking ..

    Hi there Dee. I assume then you have it in a pot which you move indoors before the first frost ? I know nothing of these more tender types. Does it need to be kept 'in leaf' over the winter ?
    Cheers...freddy.

    Its in the border Freddy, ill either protect it with compost and straw or dig it up and put it in the Ghouse, I bought it, then read the Label when i got home. Duh. I had been searching for weeks and was just so happy i found one :) Dont know about keeping it in leaf, ill have to google..
    Same here Catztail, i need a bigger Ghouse or a move to down south hehe..
