Not really Angie. Seem to remember reading somewhere that they will go beserk if grown in a greenhouse, and will soon out grow their welcome.  Sorry cant be of more help> :)

Mum has 2 in her garden.  They rampage along her fence at quite a rate of knots in the summer.  She has, supposidly, a male and female plant, and gets masses and masses of flowers in late spring, but not a fruit yet!  Shame.  I grew a load from seed last year, just to see if I could, and I did!  Thus, I am no help what-so-ever, other than to say, do you have a boy and girl plant and plenty of lllloooonnnnggggg trellis to support them?
