Hi Ray , thanks mate , it does look a real treat . i have a few varieties here , most should have a flower or two . One of the pinks has developed a flower which will be a first .

Cheers . Alpine

Hi pjames , thanks mate . All the flowers have gone , now its trimming time to keep these under control . A couple have already shot more than half metre and looking for a support to climb . I need to wire others before they get too thick

All hope is not lost, the tree that threw a summer flower is going to give me at least 7 or 8 blooms soon! I am stoked, because I'd given up on it, and root pruned it very severely at the beginning on Spring, the potted it into a pot that would be an eighth of the size of the pot it was in! :whistle: :whistle: :whistle:
I've entered Ray M's fertilising details into my calendar, so hopefully from here on in, this plant will continue to please. :)

Always a pleasure to see your flowering plants, Alpine, hope you're getting lots more Wisteria to flower.

Hi Mel ' , 6 out of the 7 potted wisteria had a flower or two , the ground growing plants missed a beat this year . Hoping for a real good display next year .

The big specimen was only fertilized with Rustica plus , being extremely high in N.P.K certainly didn't effect the flowering ability , the others are only young plants but did flower and several of the purples flowered 2-3 times last season .

Cheers . Alpine

That's good to read that you had such good results. Gotta wonder why the ground-grown tree didn't flower, is it just too young?

Hi Mel' , the ground growing stock was last years root cutting so I didn't expect any flowers just basic trunk development . All are white or pinks , have to wait and see.
