Pruning: Wisterias are notoriously difficult to make flower and will be 7 years old before they flower There are 2 time of year when wisterias need pruning and attaching to their supports.
Summer pruning (July or August)
Cut back the whippy green shoots of the current year's growth to five or six leaves after flowering in July or August. This controls the size of the wisteria, preventing it getting into guttering and windows, and encourages it to form flower buds rather than green growth.
Winter Pruning: in January or February (when the plant is dormant and leafless)
Furher cut back the growth to 2 or 3 buds on each lateral to tidy it up before the growing season starts and ensure the flowers will not be obscured by leaves.
With older plants severe pruning may be needed to remove old, worn-out growths, or branches growing over windows or protruding outwards from the face of the building. Likewise, hard pruning maybe required where maintenance needs to be carried out on the structure supporting the plant.
Drastically shortening back long branches, removing sections of older stems to just above a strong young branch or growth shoot lower down, or cutting completely back to a main branch, or even to ground level may be necessary. A careful, unhurried approach is needed if larger, thicker branches are to be removed and where a branch is twining it may be necessary to trace back and mark it at intervals with string before removing it. The end result should be a skeleton frame work of reasonably well-spaced branches.
In the spring apply fertilizer to the base of the plant.
