West Leicestershire, United Kingdom
Sorry to be asking questions again - I have lots - not all about gardening?
Anyhoo.............. Recently I bought a couple of Wisterias from the local Garden Centre - one of those two for one offers, although it was easy to see where they'd increased the price of the one to cover the other - it pleases me to let them think I'm daft!
Thing is!........... Although the labels say they are the same they're very much behaving differently? The one I've planted out the front is very sulky with minimal growth, the new tendrils are quite thin and pathetic, and the new leaves are quite wan with a definite russet colour. The other one still in its barely adequate pot out the back, is a positive thug of a plant, thick vigorous tendrils with honest to goodness bright green leaves aplenty - it's put on twice the growth of the two although they were bought at the same time and size.
Do I replace the front one with the one still in its pot? - Are they different? - Is the Sulky one just finding its feet?
Oh, and I've given them both a sequestered tonic, watering with a weak Tomorite feed and giving them plenty of rainwater to drink.
I could take pic's if that would help????
Cheers for now.....................
On plant Eric!
