The Pruning Process
How & When
January to February
The key to success with wisteria is pruning not once, but twice a year. If you’ve never pruned your wisteria, we would suggest starting now. We can prune back your wisteria professionally avoiding drainpipes and gutters and set you up for the spring flowering period.
By pruning early, professionally and hard, you should be assured of an incredible display of flowers in early to late spring.
Depending on the season, you may be lucky and have a second, though usually less prolific flowering during this period.
Our mid-summer pruning will allow sunlight in. We prune back the long whippy shoots of the current year’s growth to 5-6 leaves. This helps the size of the wisteria and also stops the plant growing into gutters, down pipes and into windows. It also encourages it to form flower buds rather than green growth.
