I have one which was originally planted in full sun but it wasn't thriving.  I moved it to a shady spot which gets sun for a while in the middle of the day and it's much happier.  The flowers do brighten up the area where it's planted..

Hi Paul.  Have you though tof asking the RHS, or is that a silly question?  I found this site

have I killed my wisteria?

Our wisteria has been rubbish this year too, maybe it because of the dry winter.  It was covered in buds but very few have opened.

I have had one of these in my garden for a few years.  It's on an east facing wall and I find it quite well behaved - I keep it to about 6 ft tall and it is currently about 10 ft wide although I am hoping it will spread a bit more. It is a good plant for the future if the water shortages should get worse as once established it does not need to be watered.

I think picture 1 is a helleborus foetidus.  It has beautiful green flowers with a red edge in late winter.early spring.

What's the weather like in your area?

The weather here (S France)  has been the usual April showers/storms for a few weeks now but much colder than usual for this time of year.  There is more snow on the mountains now than there has been all winter!  It was better today, though - no rain, at least!

Hi everyone.  I was boozysuzy on the BBC site but decided a name change was in order - I'm not really so boozy these days!  Thanks to Gardeners' World for being so welcoming.
