Wisteria is a crucial part of late April/early May but alas, this year, those of us who are completely locked down may miss seeing one, or breathing in the scent of the flowers (which is unlike anything else). Here is a wisteria to buy from Gardening Express in the UK; and for those who are allowed a walk in their neighbourhood there is usually one to be gazed at – for example, for North Londoners, there is a spectacular wisteria on the house in Delancey Street, Camden Town that was once lived in by Elizabeth Jane Howard, indeed maybe she planted it. This is a photograph taken eight years ago and it is just as amazing now!
