Why not give this story as a beautiful gift for the holidays? Watching and caring for the Passion Flower seeds would be a practice in patience and appreciation for all the beauty that surrounds us this holiday season.
As always, I have linked all of these materials in my Amazon Store here.
To create a mini-greenhouse effect, I’ve planted my Passion Flower seeds in a small terra cotta pot with a glass cloche that I found from HomArt.com. Adding a bit of reindeer moss to the base of the cloche stand adds a beautiful texture and finishing the look with a simple ribbon and gift tag really adds a special touch. I wrote the story of the Passion Flower on the back of my gift tags for a special touch.
When germinating a seed, great potting soil is a must. Also, keeping your seeds indoors in full sun with moist soil will keep this Passion Flower happy. Every few weeks, let your plant breathe some fresh air by removing the cloche. After the first frost, plant your seedlings and enjoy watching your patience pay off!
Passion Flowers grow well in the Southeast and has a woody and aggressive vine that will took up a 10 x 8 foot run in my home over a 2 year period.
This gift would make a great name tag for a table setting, a hostess gift, a holiday party favor, or a gift to inspire a child!
