More info. please Andrew...
Is this trained to grow up, tied to wires ?
I have two... one growing faster than the other...
How old was this PV when the photo was taken ?
Is this one growing in sun or shade ?

TT - this is a self-clinger BUT it must be well fed to hang on. I give it a generous helping of garden compost and some general feed each spring. The plant in the photo is four years old and is growing on a shady east-facing wall. Two years later, it has reached the top of the wall (about nine feet) and I reduce it to about six feet in spring

Thanks for the info. Andrew.
I will give mine some more garden compost.
What do you mean by "general feed" ?

16 Mar, 2010


I use concentrated chicken manure as a general feed for the garden in spring and make sure the PV gets a good helping (as well as the garden compost). Any general purpose feed, for example Growmore, would do. If this plant is hungry, it won't "stick"
