Up to date on Dead or Alive.


This is really a thank you blog for Bonkersbon who responded to my ¬DEAD or ALIVE` blog on the 5th of april when I was concerned about the state of my Wisteria.
As you can see its in a sorry state

So I pruned back the long whippy tenrils.
It has made new growth and this is how it looks now after following the very good and detailed advice curtesy of Bonkersbon.

So Ray please accept a very big THANK YOU from me as I know you were busy at the time but still gave your help.
By the way you won`t crick your neck this time as you will see I`ve turned the pic round.

Aw thanks Stroller I began writing on your first pic thinking nothing had happened to it ! not realising by second pic it had recovered sorry late in sending my thanks to you - really kind of you to take the trouble to post this.

With all this new leaf growth I dont think you ll see many flowers this year but as Dawn kindly pointed out if you prune in August and again next Feb as per blog post next year should be forming flower buds fingers crossed . Thank you again.

Hi BB, as you say probably no flowers this year, so will prune again in Aug and Feb and if nothing happens it will get the big heave ho and i shall buy a new one in bud or with flowers, as you pointed out in your blog i think that nurseries should only sell them this way.
