In my conservatory for winter protection.

I bought it in summer of 2013

But now am wondering if it can and be planted in the ground in Scotland?

Hmmm not sure, I was under the impression that they need a bit of protection from harsh weather. If you've got a sheltered sunny spot then I suppose it might be ok? Could you keep it in the pot and see how it is - that way it's easy enough to move back inside if you need to.

It mainly would depend on which type it is and what its climate region it is in. Passionflower actually grows as far north as Antarctica! It also grows in the wild, including Scotland. When you transplant it make sure it is in well drained soil.

I have passion flowers and they have gotten out of control and they also produce a fruit that taste similar to a peach
Thank you for sharing these pictures, Sissy, it's the first time when I see passion flower fruits. To be honest, I had no idea that they're edible. Do you eat them raw? How big are they? Are they juicy? If they're as sweet as peaches, I'm sure I'd love them:D

very sweet and tastes just like a peach ,if you look for muellers yogurt the have passion fruit and strawberries as one of there flavors .They are about the size of a small plumb but as the plants mature they get bigger each year .I got about 30 of them this year ..But I did thin my plants out 4 times because they were taking over .Mine were planted in 2007 .I do nothing special to them but they grow like weeds here .I think they grow 2 feet in a day as they keep covering the sidewalk .No watering by me and no fertilizer .

Oh, this sounds delightful!:D I love sweet fruits, peaches are one of my favorites. I must look for this yogurt that you're talking about. I hope it's available in my area:)
It would be nice to have a plant that is so easy to grow, looks lovely and produces yummy fruits:love:
