have I killed my wisteria?

Posted: 27/03/2012 at 01:07

Did you carefully scratch away a little bit of the stem to see if it was still green? if so i wouldnt worry too much. it probably wont do much this year just produce leaves.... if there is no green give it a while. my parnter put out my fushias into the cold one day with out telling me and they "died". there was no green at all. i left them to themselves for about 2 months and i noticed a couple of days ago a few small but very much visible green shoots. so dont give up just yet..

however if it really is dead i have no clue on how to get it out....dig down as deep as you can and try to chop must of the roots from the base and pull it out like a tooth??

thats my advice for what its worth...

personally i like monty.... i also liked alys. she is young so i could relate to her. however rachel really annoys me. but each to their own. i wish there was a gardening channel on sky because there are no good gardening programmes and oncea week on fridays just isn't often enough!!!!!!

okay so my partner and i recently bought a house and last year we started doing up the garden. we planted many nice things from wisteria to pansys and everything in between. eveything was coming along nicely startingto root and become esatablished when one morning i went out into the garden to discover that my honeysuckles had been robbed! then a few weeks later a pot with busy lizzies had been taken. following that people were out pulling sweet pea off the plants and then most recently my very small but beautifully formed wisteria swiped. has any one any advice to stop people robbing my plants!

Excellent advice. I was really unsure what to do with my Dahlias but this answers my question. Thanks GW....
