Hi everyone,im a newbie here so please forgive meif i have posted this in the wrong place ! Im eeding some advice on my new Wisteria. I bought it on sunday had to pick it up from Southampton, its 20 yrs old and grown from seed and at £25 i thought it was a bargain !!
The pot it came in was way too heavey to carry so i have put it in another pot ( a deeper one ) as that was the only spare pot i had. On sunday eve i was on Google, and read to my horror, that by putting it in a larger/ deeper pot, it will send it back to beeing a juvenile and go back to producing leaves next year and not flowers!!
Does anyone know that this is true ? I dont know yet if it will become a Bonsai yet, i may keep it as it is, and im aware that i cant do anything untill its finished flowering anyway, but it terrified im risking loosing the flowering next year !!!
aeris73 , it's a beautiful plant isn't it! I've not heard that but I wouldn't think it would make much difference unless it was a massive difference in pot size & yours looks like it must have been in only a slightly smaller one originally.
What I don`t understand Aeris, is, why isn`t your young, "grafted" Wisteria not flowering yet. If grafted, Wisterias should be in full flower in 3 years. In fact, they would normally be of flowering age at the time of sale.
Geumlover: Autumn is the time to build the compost heap, or at least that's what the old books say.
