Follow Wisteria spp. & cvs.

Fiona Butcher is passionate about Wisteria and has established her collection in Cumbria since 2016, planted in the garden and in pots.

As the king of climbers, Wisteria needs no introduction. Its long racemes of flowers are a stunning visual and olfactory delight. Fiona grows a lot of them in a small space, some in the ground, and some in pots; armed with only a pair of scissors to prevent complete invasion... 

Fiona is looking forward to giving you updates on her National Collection and its developments throughout the year.

You will receive:

  • a personalised certificate
