When to give up on Passion Flower coming back

posted by: TNVirginia on 05.09.2013 at 09:46 pm in Passiflora Forum

I had a volunteer passion flower vine appear in my backyard last year. As soon as I realized what it was, I fenced it in to protect it from the dogs. It flowered and fruited beautifully and was a buffet for lots of caterpillars.

I'm in zone 7 and haven't seen the first sign of it coming back this spring. When does it usually sprout? Should I give up and buy one from the store?

Kumquat Advice?

posted by: TNVirginia on 10.31.2012 at 12:32 am in Citrus Forum

I have a small kumquat in a pot and I have some questions:

I've brought mine inside already, but now I'm reading that they can withstand temps in the 20's? Can they? Should I put it back out?

When is the best time to repot?

Any suggestions for type of pot? I have it in what I thought was a sturdy plastic pot, but it has gotten brittle over the years.

Thanks for all of your help!
