Is this what I think it is??? Is my Wisteria flowering for the first time???

Hi all - 

Those of you who have interacted with me before might remember that I am a real gardening novice with a huge soft spot for all purple and lavandar flowers, especially hyacinths, lupins and of course wisteria, my absolute favourite. 

I started to get into gardening a couple of springs ago when lockdown first hit, and my lovely husband brought home two little wisteria tree, as I had mentioned I loved those. 

After some research, I learnt that wisteria doesn't flower until its 6th or 7th year, and I remember being quite upset because that felt like a long time to wait, but also because I had no idea how old my wisteria trees were anyway! 

Then the autum came and I thought the wisteria had died (I had no idea what decidious meant...) and I almost threw them away. 

To cut a long story short, this is my third summer of having these little trees and I really really was not expecting anything to happen this year, but I have just noticed a few little buds on one plant and now I am extremely excited! 

Fellow wisteria lovers, is this in fact a bud? Is my wisteria going to be giving us flowers this July??? And if so, what do I need to know? Extra feeding, watering, pruning?? I have ZERO idea. 

Thank you! 
Alex from Norwich, Norfolk :)

    When it blooms I'll probably be able to hear the whoops of joy and the celebrations!!!

    Can't be that far! Norfolk is not that big! And I have a friend who runs a business called 
    Dove & Boweevil and I keep wondering if you're connected? :)

    No that’s not me … although I know of the business you mean. 😎
