THERE'S wisteria hysteria at a deserted Exbury Gardens this May.

Despite the lockdown, fans are being treated to a series of virtual tours of the stunning grounds thanks to landscape designer Marie-Louise Agius and her cockerpoo Willow.

Marie-Louise, the great granddaughter of Lionel de Rothschild, who created the New Forest gardens, is currently isolating in the grounds and is posting the wonders of the seasonal displays via Exbury's social media sites.

She said: "The gardens are literally bursting at the moment, really hitting their stride. I know it's not the same as visiting them, but hopefully this way you can still enjoy their beauty and wonder."

Her latest post shows the famous Wisteria floribunda 'Macrobotrys' in the Sundial Garden via an aerial drone.
