GARDENING QUESTION

Recommended Posts

Passion flower vine is continually dropping flower buds before they open. Watering seems okay. Any ideas???

Passiflora usually requires a minimum of 4 hours of strong sunlight and that has been hard to come by for what seems like forever. By "watering seems okay" do you mean that the plant is not being overwatered because overwatering can cause blossom drop.

Probably some bug is nipping them off. Put some deterrent powder or spray on the plant.

This has happened with my Bauhinia tree and several of my hibiscus.

Thanks to all for your comments/suggestions. I have felt that the plant was neither overwatered or underwatered, and the soil has a lot of jal mixed in and therefore provides good drainage. However, I'm going to let it dry out a bit and see what happens, and it's been awhile since I've sprayed for insects, which I will do this week.
