I was in a meeting at work the other day where we were discussing the up and coming TSVs and (I think the official secrets act allows me to say this) was delighted to hear all about the forthcoming wisteria TSV that’s planned for Wednesday 14th March.
I had always been under the impression that wisteria take about seven years of growth before they start flowering. Of course then you get those beautiful long racemes (I’ll check with Richard if that’s the right term) of blue violet that really take your breath away.
What's special about out wisteria is the early flowering (within two years) and the extra long flowers (nearly a meter long I’m told!) – they sound absolutely amazing! It reminded me of how beautiful the flowers outside our house looked last year.
Of course, as many of you do, I saw a nice display of flowers and I was out there with my camera and snapped the memories. The photo above shows what mine (well the neighbours really) looked like – but can you beat it?
I know if you have a splendid wisteria you have probably taken pictures of it, so post some on QVC’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/qvcuk) and we’ll see who has the best wisteria in the UK! I’ll try to show them on the shows I’ll be doing with R.J at 9am and 12pm.
I look forward to seeing your pride and joy!!
