    One will be enough ......... I promise you ......... one will be more than enough.

    I know one Russian vine that covers a large pear tree, a large garden shed, a garage and a farmhouse .......... all one vine ..... really!

    be careful what you wish for. 

    Some eejit decided it'd be a good idea to plant one growing through a conifer hedge.

    I've been trying to get rid of it since we moved here 6 years ago.

  • Oh I had better be grateful that just the one grew then.

  • Hi I bought the 3 online cost me about £25 so I suppose they weren't established plants. I also bought 3 Wisteria plants online and none of them took all died, so am thinking of giving up buying plants online. Thank you for your reply.

  • They certainly don't want mine I put mine in my field against a large chicken run I think it must be the strong winds that blow across.

  • Never heard about this plant, thanks for sharing your experience
