@cyndi thank you Cyndi 😁 there’s another lot on top of the arch too. So excited there’s going to be more than one this year 😂

@ublaszko it is but nothing like the wisteria I’ve smelled before. It has a green smell, if that makes sense 😜

I've read about the green smell the other day but not sure what it is. 😁

@ublaszko I suppose I’d describe it as squished grass with a hint of spice 😂

Interesting 👍 Different flower buds to mine. I'm a big disappointed with mine, as it if has nowhere as many flower buds as last year.

That's good. The older it gets, the more flowers it should have. Mine is growing alright but nearly all leaves this year. Very few flowers or buds. Not sure why? Maybe tok wet a winter or too dry in spring 🤔

@jeatacake it has been a very dry spring but still disappointing for you given the display you had last year 😐 hiding from the virus maybe 😉😷

Very cool Kerry! Ooo I've been dying for some of this. I have some Chinese wisteria the purple variety planted from seedlings I transplanted last year... I even had luck with a couple of seeds sprouting to give me even more... it hasn't gotten big enough to produce flowers... but hopefully next year.... I'm hoping to get some 'Alba' to add as well. Yours is going to be ravishing!

This will be the start of many. Mine was like this last year, only a few on it. This year, a hundred or more!👌

@PunkyKy wow! You grew from seedlings 😯 you have some patience! I hope they reward you with flowers very soon 😁 if I manage to get seeds from this one I’d be happy to send you some 😛

@ublaszko it’s the only one of the 3 that’s this big. This one just does its own thing now 😂

ublaszko

Wow, you have three of those 😲😂😂 They will get huge once they get going. My garden is too small for even one wisteria 😂😂 It can barely cope with passionflower 😅

comment

@ublaszko have pink, white and blue. This one is in the middle and one either side of it. I don’t plan on letting them get too big, just want them for a few flowers 😛 maybe that’s a good thing because if you had wisteria you’d get frustrated with it growing all over itself 🤣

😂😂😂 Yeah, I definitely have a preference for well - behaved climbers (if there ever was such a thing 😂)

🤞I've watched lots of YouTube videos on how to prune to get more blooms but none of the videos seem to address how to prune young ones that haven't bloomed yet. Really don't know know if I'm doing it right🙈

@Denise16 I know exactly how you feel. Mine are young plants too and I’m stuck on how to prune them. Going to have to investigate and if I find out anything I’ll let you know 😛

My arch like this one bit the dust today in the wind. Had my runner beans growing up it 😢
