Yes you can grow wisteria as a bonsai. I dont think a wisteria likes to much shade, i think it got something to do with the sun getting to the flower buds.

leave to die back naturally, you can remove the old corms at the end of the season for more flowers and an overall more healthier plants

One of my cucumbers has gone a bit mad, its by far the largest cucumber plant i ever had ( i not grow many in the past though ) . Must be the warm weather we been having.  I did a bit of experiment with two cucumber plants i have grown. One was planted in a pot and the other one planted into my veg bed in the Greenhouse, both sown  - planted on - feed at the same time.

The difference between the two plants is literal HUGE.  The Cucumber in the pot is about 2 foot tall - had no Cucumbers off it yet but has about 5 growing.

Cucumber in the ground - large - already had 3 large cucumbers off it - has a potential 22 cucumbers growing   and i sure it growing a few inch everyday

Here a picture of each plant.

Whoops was meant to put in Fruit & veg forum
