 If you do encounter wisteria, quickly scuttle backwards like a frightened crab, shrieking the mantra "These flowers are just fancy wall dirt! A bin-bag is the place for these fetid petals!"


Friends don't let friends photograph wisteria. Even once is too many.

My gardening name happens to be Mister Wisteria and my mother who is 80 today once left a message saying: 'Hi Mister Wisteria this is your mother Mrs Hysteria !!' which was funny.  I am a specialist in wisteria as it happens.
