Propagation

Seed - best sown in a warm greenhouse in early spring. The seed can take 12 months or more to germinate and there is usually a poor germination rate[1]. When the seedlings are large enough to handle, prick them out into individual pots. Grow them on a shady part of the greenhouse for at least their first winter and then plant them out in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frost. Consider giving the plant some protection from the cold for their first winter or two outdoors.

Cultivation

Prefers a deep, moist, humus-rich soil and a position where it is sheltered from drying winds and strong sunlight[3][2]. This species will tolerate a slightly alkaline soil if peat or some other acid medium is added, but it is not really suited to chalky soils[3].

This species is not very hardy outdoors in Britain[3], tolerating temperatures down to about -10°c so long as this is not for prolonged periods[2]. It succeeds in the more westerly areas of the country, but in general needs the protection of a wall and will succeed on a south-facing wall so long as it is protected from winds from that quarter[3]. If the top-growth is cut back by winter cold, the plant can re-sprout from the rootstock[2]. A climbing plant, growing up through trees and shrubs and supporting itself by twining around them[2].

The plant usually forms fruit in Britain, but the seed is seldom fertile[3].
