Pruning A Wisteria.
Can you give me any gardening tips on Pruning Wisteria?
Wisterias flower more freely if pruned in summer and winter to build up a spur system in the same way you would encourage a fruit tree to create fruiting spurs.
In August shorten-back the current seasons shoots to about 30cm.This allows more sun to get to the wood,encouraging more spurs and flower-bud formation. In February,cut back the summer-pruned shoots to within 2.5-5cm of the older wood or two to three buds.It should be possible now to distinguish the plumper flower buds from the slimmer growth buds.Any long,whippy shoots that grew after the summer pruning should also be pruned at this stage.Cut these back to five or six buds from the main branch,making the cut just above a bud..
