Sick Passionfruit Vine

Postby leeroy » Thu Dec 15, 2016 11:25 am

Hello everyone,

Before I start I just want to say I'm new here and new to gardening so I hope I am posting in the correct spot.
My partner and I planted a passionfruit vine (Nelly Kelly) approx. 2 years ago, which absolutely flourished in the first year.
Last summer we had so much healthy fruit we could barely eat it all.
This year however is much different. The vine is very sick, yellow and in parts spotty. I have attached some pictures to hopefully show this.
It's such a shame as it was doing so well and providing us with both lovely fruit as well as privacy along our fence.

Does anybody have any idea what could be wrong with this or how to try and fix it? We are in Melbourne if this helps at all.

Thanks everyone,

Looks like a nutrient issue. Do a ph soil test. You can get kits at nursery
