Pruning a Wisteria
The Wisteria had been neglected and was looking over busy and congested
The trimming back begins with the aim of forming an elegant overall shape and creating as many future flower bearing spurs as possible. Something of a challenging task simply because of the size and extent of the Wisteria. Some of the more 'awkward' growths were removed in an attempt to make it 'flow' coherently around the iron framework. Eventually a pleasing, neatly trimmed shape began to appear.
By mid-April the flower buds had started to show and whether the pruning exercise had been a success would soon be revealed.
Finally the renovated Wisteria emerged in all it's glory, delightful with a really lovely spread of cascading bunches of flowers all around the iron framework.
