I remember you mentioning them last year. I'm very pleased this one has survived. I think you said you had 2 ? Is the other one alive ?

Not too sure yet, fingers crossed though.

Have you tried scraping a bit of the bark Sandra ? - have a look if they're green. But even if not they can come back from the root, even as late as June. So don't give up yet.

I've just done that with my passion flower Hywel. looked dead but stems are green when scraped so fingers crossed.

Glad it's still alive Simbad. My passion flower is really dead. I've tried three times to grow one but they always die.
