Can I move my Passion Flower?


By Mduffy

It is situated at the back of a garden shed and trails over it. The shed now needs to be moved and the Passison flower root is positioned right in the middle. Can I did up the Passion Flower root and move it? If so when is the best time to do this? It has been in this position for a number of years and always gives a splendid display. I would hate to loose it.



i once read you can in some climates but they can suffer from shock and die because fragile roots

Sanbaz is right, they don't take too well to being moved for precisely the reason she says - and as yours is mature, it will be difficult to move and not break the roots. If there's no choice but to move it, it's worth a try, but I wouldn't do it till the plant is totally dormant in winter - you will probably have to remove some of the top growth and its okay to do that when its asleep in the winter. Try to dig out a very large rootball to keep as many roots intact as possible.
