One of my favourite fruits is passion fruit.
Sweet and juicy passionfruits, that helps me go to toilet, faster.
So when my garden was ready, my first fruit tree that I wanted to plant is passionfruit. My previous passionfruit died cos I stayed at an intermediate unit and there wasn't much sun and space for them to crawl. SO when I moved to my new house, I decided I want to build an extra tall trellis for my passion fruit. A 7 ft tall trellis. *gulp* I know, I am a very greedy gardener. Make use of the space ma...right? *lol*
So here's what you need:
A big pot (if you want to plant them in a pot)
Plastic Pipes ( i bought this 20 ft pipe at rm9 from hardware shop)
A passion fruit plant (of course)
Cable tie ( not in pic) OR Garden wire (refer to pic below)
Heavy duty wire. I bought from hardware shop about 20ft for Rm3.50
I bought this garden wire from Ace Hardware about rm5.90 for 100ft. You can tie alot alot alot of things with this.
Place the plant in the middle of the pot and then fill it with soil.
And arrange the pipes surrounding the plant like this. It will be better if you have more pipes.
Since the heavy duty wires are already coiled into circle, i just put the entire wire around the pot and pull them up. They just go spiral and you just secure the placing with cable tie or garden wire. Sorry no pic of this cos , who else wanna snap pic of me when I'm always the official photographer?
And this is the outcome. Fuh! I nearly fainted while preparing this cos I'm only 5ft 1 tall and this trellis is 7 ft tall.
Looking forward for the leaves to fill up the entire trellis and hopefully I can harvest some passionfruits soon :)
