Passion Flower Progress

After planting 16 passion flower seeds of different varieties well over a month ago now we ended up with 4 seadlings. Pretty happy to get anything with the British weather.

We had a problem that when we went away on holiday recently we had no-one to tend to our new seedlings. Thankfully we invested in an elaborate automatic watering system that would pump water from a bucket every 9 hours.

All kinds of scenarios played themselves out in our minds, will we flood the flat downstairs, will we destroy our flooring, will the pump fail and kill all the plants, will they get enough sunlight just left under an open window. We were pleasantly surprised when we got home after 10 days all the seedlings had flourished.

So onwards and upwards for our 4 little passion flowers. Hopefully we will one day see elaborate and colourful flowers from them.

 This one is our current star performer, probably due to being closest to the window.
