  10. Nobert,

    These flowers are so beautiful. I would love to get hold of these flowers and see if I can grow them myself. Probably not though, becuase it isn’t as warm here in New Brunswick, Canada, like it is where you are. WOW!!!!!!!!!! Wonderful article my friend. Well done once again. :) Keep up with the great work. Keep on penning. Thank you so very much for sharing your wonderful and creative talents with us. :)

  11. I’m also in NB Canada – I grow 2 kinds of passionflowers in the same pot as an avacado tree in a sunny spot in my kitchen. They both flowered beautifully within a month of planting, and I thought how great the avacado was going to look with these flowers all through it. It now has the vine vigorously growing all through it all right, but no flowers. :( I’ve been doing a bit of research though & it seems phosphorus & potassium are the 2 nutrients I’ll be looking into.
