Hubby is getting himself green fingers. He planted two Photinias this weekend and a Wisteria.
The previous plant also didn’t survive the - 20 °C frost so we replaced it with a wisteria vine which will grow along this arbor.
It can take up to two years to successfully train a wisteria vine to grow up this structure. During this time we will have to water it continually, and prune back the excess vines. According to the experts: in the winter is a perfect time to prune it back considerably. It will grow even more in the spring, giving us a healthier vine next year.
Wisteria vines are a very fast growing vine. This is one of the reasons for buying it. But the primary reason, I love this Blue Moon.
Blue Moon is also known as a very strong vine. They can grow upwards of 20 feet (6 meters) long with very thick vines. The pressure they can exert on a structure when they are growing around it is tremendous. So hopefully this structure can withhold the pressure
Here are some shots of the photinias
Couldn’t contain myself and had to buy this blooming basket with the common Verbena, Helichrysum and Petunia’s.
