wisteria and winter

Posted: 10/11/2012 at 09:52

Hi, can anyone tell me if my wisteria floribunda alba should lose its leaves over the winter, mine is completely bare already, is this right or have I neglected it?

Ground, sotongeoff.

Its in a spot that gets plenty of sun and I generally keep on top of watering that's why I thought maybe over watered??

Hi, I bought a well established white hydrangea this summer which was going along quite nicely. Since returning from my holiday I've noticed the leaves have gone brown round the edges, the flowers are fine but not the leaves. Could it of been over watered?

Yeyyyyyy, I have 2 tiny tomatoes but guess what....the first ones to fruit are the most neglected! after filling 3 grow-bags I had 4 plants left which I left in their small pots for weeks then later popped all 4 into a terracotta pot and stuck them in the greenhouse, they have had the least water because of the pot and now I have fruit! obviously I've been over watering. The actual plants look the healthiest too, the grow-bags look leggy, a bit crinkly looking, but not crispy and have creamy white specks on and brown edges whereas the pot are all a lovely green colour......very odd! anyway.....I HAVE TOMS!!!!!!

To Mrs Lilly Pond and Insomnia1973.....If I promise to bring the coffee, can I join you in the corner, I sooo have a lot to learn! I have masses of flowers on my toms but not a single fruit I planted them in march, surely they should be fruiting by now, how long has a girl got to wait??? I've made plenty of mistakes but also had a few triumphs, so its not all bad. I'm learning lots from the guys on the forum and they truely are a godsend!

well we received it on 28th June and its been laid out on the tarmac drive since then, its healthy and the flowers are growing but my husband wanted it for the bee hives to sit on, we are collecting the bees at 7.30pm tonight and although he can dig the turf up tomorrow he was just wondering if there was any need to as he thought the plastic netting might kill the grass anyway.
