Position: full sun or partial shade Soil: fertile, moist but well-drained Flowering period: May to June Other features: fragrant flowers, sometimes followed by velvety, green seed-pods in hot summers; all parts of the plant are harmful if ingested Hardiness: fully hardy A native species of North America, this is a more compact form than its Chinese and Japanese cousins. This makes it ideally suited for large pots, which can be placed under pergolas or arches to transform them into a charming feature, well-suited to a cottage garden. If the garden is large enough, then plant them out against the wall of a house for an incredible late spring and summer display. Its dense clusters of lilac-blue flowers seem to drip from its twining stems and they emit a delicious fragrance, so make sure you plant it near a seating area or entrance if you can. All the Wisterias we sell are grafted, so will start to flower at a younger age than those grown from cuttings. Garden care: To get lots of flowers, the twining stems need pruning twice a year - once in summer (about two months after the flowering has finished) and again in mid-winter. To train your Wisteria against a wall, the wall will first need a network of stout horizontal wires, attached at approximately 30cm intervals. After planting, prune the leading shoot of your Wisteria back to approximately 90cm above ground level and remove any side branches as this will encourage a strong new leader to form. In the summer of the first growing season, tie the leader in vertically and choose two new lateral shoots on either side of the leader. Tie these onto the wires at a 45 degree angle. Any smaller shoots coming from these lateral branches should be cut back to two or three buds. In the first winter, cut back the leader to a bud approximately 75cm above the highest lateral branch. Gently untie the lateral branches and prune them back by about a third, then re-tie them onto a wire so they are nearly horizontal. In subsequent summers (and until the plant has filled the allotted sp

Twins, Ben and Carey Naismith have returned after their exile at the hands of the villagers. These two have much to show Tess, regarding the sinister happenings of Century Falls and its terrifying past... ...Century Falls
Advantages: Good food, not too expensive, lovely place Disadvantages: can get a bit loud when busy, no disabled toilets
In my quest to do new things this year I?ve been going to restaurants I?ve never been to before. I?ve also been shaking things up by looking for a new job. Talking to my friend Sloan (who happens to be my partner Allan?s cousin), I had mentioned that I had an interview in North Port in Perth. Rather bizarrely, she had just been talking to a colleague about a restaurant that had just...

How to play
When you start, a little red ball falls down from the top of the screen which is covered in a series of green horizontal lines which have holes in (they are like platforms and reminds me a bit of Donkey Kong). The aim of the game is to get the ball down to the bottom of the, through these holes by screen by...
Advantages: Classic direction. Good script. Fair few twists. Disadvantages: Not as good as some of Hitchcock's classics.
...North by Northwest ? DVD and film review
At the moment I find myself in an Alfred Hitchcock type mood. That said I think you can be expecting a few reviews by me on movies directed by the legend.
The first surprising thing about this movie considering the time it was made (1959) is the fact that the lead role is not played by James Stewart. It is not surprising because Stewart is...
