Q.How Do I Manage This Passionflower?

Zone london | moya.russell@googlemail.com added on April 13, 2021 | Answered

This plant was exposed to frost and is not responding to fertiliser ( seaweed and clematis feed given once each in past 2 months). What can I do and should it be cut back?

I have answered on the original, but just in case, I will repost my answer, here:

Iron chlorosis can be common over the winter. If you have given it feed according to instruction, then it will not be time to feed just yet. Rather, if your area does get quite a bit of rain, then I suspect that this is the culprit.

Root suffocation can cause poor nutrient absorbtion and rot. Make sure that the container has plenty of drain holes to allow all extra water out. These plants will not want to be saturated, constantly.

You may think about using a fungicide, as well. This can help kill or prevent any infections that are inherent to wet soils. Here is an article that will help you with fungicide use:
