Passionfruit in South Australia

Kieren from Hillbank in South Australia sent us in some great photos of how to go about setting up a passionfruit vine.

A site which receives part sun and shade was selected
The wire mesh was added for the passionfruit to grow along
Bricks were layed to contain the soil
The passionfruit vine was planted

Kieren selected both the Passionfruit - Granadilla and the Panama Red. My guess is that because passionfruit are fast growers the wire mesh will will be covered with the vine in a few months.
