Wisteria Pruning

Wisteriaon wall
Mid Winter is the right time for pruning Wisteria, and I have several to prune over the next few days.   They need to be cut back twice a year, in July and January, and are one of several climbers that flower much better if they are rigorously spur pruned. The winter pruning needs to be quite drastic to take away all the late summer wispy growth, and to train in the main branches (spurs), which the plump flower buds will shoot off from.  They are vigorous climbers, so make sure that you give them enough room to spread themselves, and you will be rewarded with pendent racemes of white blue and purple, that mean that spring is fully here.
