Debbie ConibereHello Fiona, I watched you on Gardeners World the other week, I would like to say how beautiful your garden is, I never knew there were so many types of Wisteria. We are moving into a bare, new build garden very soon, I knew I wanted Wisteria and seeing your small garden (which ours will be too) has inspired me to plant more than one Wisteria, the double headed Yae-Kokuryu hopefully being one of them. So thank you, your lovely garden has inspired and helped me to know what I definitely want in the new garden 💜

I have had many messages in the last few days asking if I sell wisteria - I don't I'm sorry - I have a day job and this is just my hobby and private collection...... 🙂 ... See MoreSee Less

Ken HartleyGreat to see you and your wisterias this evening on TV this evening Fiona. I am still following your advice re: pruning and am hoping for even greater flowering next Spring. I have two standard white wisterias in pots. You mentioned the need to cut away half the root every two years. Can you advise me on the best time to do that please and what sort of compost mix you would recommend to enable best chance of health and flowers?
