sorry Hostafan1!  I was 'Googling' - asking for when to feed my Wisteria and these answers came up, didn't check the date! Better late than never! Happy Gardening.

Cercis, you have given good advice re the Wisteria but just a quick note about Clematis : I bought mine from Taylors Clematis and they told me to feed the plant until it starts to flower and then stop as to continue feeding will shorten the flowering season.Thought it was a tip worth passing on.



Yellowing leaves on escallonia

could be a fungal disease , there is one specific to Escallonia , often purple or black spots preceed yellowing and leaf drop. Can be treated with a spray eg/ Bayer multi rose 2 etc.

saw a peacock and a tortoiseshell yesterday in my garden in East Yorkshire. Wonder if there will be any Red Admirals this year - not one last year

Wisteria - should I plant now ??

I have a large wisteria growing in a pot which is aprox. 2ft high and 18" wide at the top although the wisteria   flowers well  it appears potbound- should I repot it and if so when?

Hi Angie3, the pot is terracotta and sort of vase shaped, thats smaller at the base and flaring out to the top -  is 22" wide at the top and 22" tall, not so huge which is why I feed it and keep it well watered.It has flowered really well this year.

Good advice from Rosie31. I too love Wisteria and although mine grows happily in a large pot and now has spread over the fence about 15 feet i always have to water and feed it whereas in the geound they are far less maintenance and even more vigorous.Not many people mention the perfime but mine has a beautiful fragrance too. Good luck with yours Angie 3.
