Wisteria Climbing Plants - Planting Instructions

Sowing Time

  • These potted plants are suited to planting all year round
  • Do not plant in frosty conditions

Hole Preparation

  • When planting, dig a deep planting hole, ideally 1½ft deep
  • Plant approx. 2" deep to encourage new shoots to develop from ground level
  • Shade out lower half of plant with small shrubs
  • Ensure roots have plenty of space & soil to grow
  • These plants are not suited to containers or limited root zone space
  • Mix in well rotted manure
  • Also mix in a small handful of fertiliser

Handling the Plants

  • Take care not to damage plant's roots
  • Water plants before & after planting
  • Feed plants over the Summer months
  • Use a fertiliser high in phosphorus & potassium
  • Mulch up around the base of plants after planting
  • Provide a climbing support for wisteria when young
  • A strong trellis or wire frame would work fine

Pruning Wisteria

  • Benefits from regular pruning
  • This promotes better flowering & will keep plant in check
  • Prune in back after flowering
  • Ideally, prune in July - August
  • Cut back fresh, young growth to keep plant in check

Wisterias - Interesting Fact

  • Wisteria was named after Dr. Caspar Wistar - The man who almost discovered the first ever dinosaur bone
  • He found the bone in 1787 but failed to see it's significance & the (thigh) bone was later lost
