Growing wisteria in containers
MAny varieties of wisteria are suitable for containers, and can be trained as climbers or grown as standards.
Choose a large container and fill it with John Innes no. 3 compost. After planting, ensure your new container wisteria is kept watered in dry spells.
For a standard wisteria, insert a 5ft/1.5m stake when you plant. Train a single shoot to the top of the stake, pinch it out, then cut back all side shoots to 6in/15cm in winter. After a couple of years, prune in summer too, cutting back to about 11⁄4in/3cm and slowly building up a mass of tight growth.
