Medium_img_2081 the leaves on my passionfruit vine are dying

I inherited this passionfruit vine when we purchased our house back in May 2018, the house is 6yrs old but I don't know how old the vine is - I am assuming 5-6 years old. I have attached a photo as I'm not too sure what is or has happened. There are lots of fruit but the foliage is dying, the fruit seems to be ripening but I'm worried about the leaves falling off, is this normal? I've attached a photo.

Answer: Hi Megan,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

Looks like there is section dieback which may due to nutrients related issue, particularly if the plant is fruiting and hasn’t been fed during this period. I would suggest a weekly application of Yates Thrive Citrus & Fruit Natural Fish & Seaweed+ Concentrate, the dual acting formula feed through both leaves and roots to boost healthy growth and prolific fruits.

Prune back the brown leaves and clear out the dieback stems to encourage more new growth.

Hope this helps and happy gardening.

Best Regards,
Yates Horticulturist
