Trim wis­te­ria

Go Gardening - - Masterclass -

after flow­er­ing to keep the ram­pant growth tidy over sum­mer; cut the side branches back to about 30cm from the main stem. Then in win­ter, after the leaves have fallen, shorten them fur­ther so that three or four plump flower buds re­main on each. If you want your wis­te­ria to grow longer re­move basal suck­ers right back to the main stem after flow­er­ing. Or to put the brakes on an over ram­pant vine, leave the suck­ers on un­til win­ter be­fore pruning them out.
