May.....

Now the bulbs are fading, its time to think about which bedding you are going to plant, but be aware there are still frosts about. It's time to get back into the swing of mowing the lawn regularly and it will be loving the warmer temperatures this month will bring.


 

Plant of the Month.....Wisteria

wisteriaWith masses of sweetly scented cascading flowers of blue lilac, pink or white, wisteria are truly one of the most remarkable sights in any garden and undoubtedly the most aristocratic member of the pea family. They are a very adaptable climber and can be trained against a wall, up into a tree, over arches and pergolas or simply up a post. They are hardy and robust and their needs are simple. Give them a well-drained, fertile soil and a sheltered, predominately sunny position and they will give you spectacular floral displays for years to come. 

All our plants are grafted and usually flower within three to four years of grafting, significantly quicker than plants grown from seed. 

For more information about growing wisteria, see our care and culitvation guide.
