Am I getting over-excited?


Am I getting over-excited?

Or are there flower buds on Rachel's Wisteria. She couldn't take it with her, so I planted it at the foot of one of the big apple trees and I 'think' it might flower this year!

It is always difficult to tell until the buds grow longer. Early on they look the same. Have you seen it in flower? Usually if it has flowered once it will flower again.

Thanks Linda. It was in flower when she bought it three years ago, but it hasn’t flowered since....but she had it in a big pot.

You will need to watch it carefully otherwise it will stifle the apple if it is anything like as vigorous as the pink I had.eventually it had to go.

You know how large my pink one is, Karen. Too big for the poor Apple tree. They are temperamental when it comes to flowering, but if it has flowered you should be ok.

I will worry aboutthat when it happens. If it doesn’t flower this year or next, it will come out anyway.

Talk about 'Flower or else!' lol! Poor thing, give it a chance to settle in. Fingers crossed

Thanks Julia...it actually doesn’t matter if it smothers the tre as it doesn’t produce any decent fruit anyway!
