Doreen and I pruned this wisteria in March, each growth down to two buds which always seems drastic. Phew! It is looking good.
Trailer loads of plants coming down from the nursery, hundreds of plants in pots being placed in every bed in all the gardens. We were planting in the Fountain Walk (between the Mairi Garden and the Dodo Terrace) – Digitalis Parviflora Milk Chocolate (red), Ferns Dicksonia Sellowiana, Euryops, with a yellow daisy like flower, Hypericum Magician Gold, pale gold leaves. Every corner we went around there were more plants begging to be planted and it is very tempting to stay on and work till dark and come back again the next day. We didn’t.
