Me again!

as things come into leaf/bud here in the garden I will no doubt ask. 

Here’s two curious ones. Is the first one a blueberry of some kind? Either way I think it’s not happy in a container and should probably plant out?

the second is some sort of climbing plant. I thought it was wisteria but these buds are odd.

    The first one looks like a Spirea japonica to me, but I could be wrong.  Can be grown in pots, but it wants to be a reasonable sized shrub, so better in the ground.  You can prune them back hard every year, or trim them to size, if you prefer to keep it in a pot.

    agree with S japonica hybrid. and no 2 is deffo a wisteria. ( mix of flower and leaf buds )

    Thanks very much for that both, I did think wisteria but surprised to see flower buds already that’s all.

    thanks again
