Very delicate and pretty, Im very disappointed with mine, they made a great start and flowered well at first, but despite me cutting off the fading flowers they have are not producing very many flowers now and the leaves seem to be drying out, I given them a feed and made sure thet are kept watered, but feel like cutting them right down now, any ideas whats gone wrong?

Thats a shame. Mine are just getting going after a bad start. Perhaps they got a bit dry at some point. I also cut off most of the tendrils to get more strength into the plant, as I know my old dad used to do that, and tie them in, but he was addicted to getting long stems and lots of flowers per stem. I don't go that far, and I know he used to sometimes bring them down and let them go up the canes again.

I cut my trendils off too, maybe they may come back but if not at least I had a few little bunches to enjoy;0)
