Well mine finished early June Meanie, and nothing since. Then a flush in mid August, think it needed some sun:o)))

Thanks Paul, above the decking and Fat Jacks Crab Shack ;o)))))))))

What a surprise Nr. mine finished ages ago it wouldn't have a chance to reflower as it's been pruned back !

Now I'm curious about Fat Jacks Crab Shack LOL

It was Amy, and I do have to confess I never know when the time is right to prune, the last time we did it seemed sad the year after :o(. However, realise I need to. Fat Jacks is a little area on the decking my OH dedicates to all things beach/fishing - similar to one we saw in The Keys will take a pic and put it on :o))))))

Thanks Nr ,we would love to see it , I love Crab and thought you had found a fantastic eating place ;o) we prune our Wistera twice a year once at the end of Febuary when you get all those long wispy bits and then all current years growth prune hard Aug./ Sept . to 6" off the main trunk / stem , it always comes back and flowers beautifully each year but yours looks so beautiful who can say which way is right when you are getting such lovely result !

Will put a pic on soon honest and hey Amy it is a fantastic place to eat and maybe have a small glass, as it is a sun trap :o))))) Am going to try and prune again and hope it works out better this time, maybe the earlier pruning did work eventually!
