Many thanks to David K. with the advice about Wisteria. I am pleased to say it is in flower and looking good.

Any idea please. Has been in a rich soil,full sun for 3/4 years. Was in  flower when i planted,but has never flowered since.

Each spring the leaves turn yellow and die. The whole plant has died back by June.

Each year i have feed with different plant feeds,but this year it is still looking the same.

Thanks David K. Could be thrips.I Have already sprayed. Fingers crossed ,hopefully i might get some colour.

My 1 year old wisteria has 8 good size buds. I have sprayed for insects.Good leave.

The weather is so changeable.some days of sun with a cold night. Or a cold chilly wind during the day and night.

Today i have noticed that some of the buds are dropping almost crumbling.

As anyone any ideas please. Is it the cold.???????????????

Thanks everyone for the trips. I hope i will have a better crop this year. Previous years

haven't been very good due to a cold summer and alot of rain.Just to mention i have sown the seeds into the ground.Hopefully starting in the greenhouse will be better.

Its the first time i have sown in seed trays. How many seedlings to a cell? If more than two,do i need to thin out before planting into the ground.

My thoughts are the same as Dave Morgan.


What's the weather like in your area?

We are having a sunny bright spell in north Cornwall. The warm weather has given the purple sprouting a boost.Will have a picking at the weekend it time for a Sunday roast.Yummy home grown veggies..

Spring flowers are looking very colourful.I even have a dwarf tulip in flower.

It s a grey day in North Cornwall. Lots of heavy rain. After a sunny one yesterday it

looks as if we are in for a bad spell again. I am so pleased i have a greenhouse to potter in.
