I cut all the long shoots back to 6 or 7 leaves then cut them back again to 2 or 3 in late winter, by which time you can see the flower buds. The one on the house in this picture is very vigorous and I have to prune it a few times over the summer. Hope that helps. I don’t think you can prune them too hard 👍@wagsmomthompsonbtinternetcom
So pleased to see this. I thought I had lost all of the flowers to that very late frost but no! I left the dead buds for a while but then gave it a trim and now it is rewarding me 😍🥰 #white #wisteria #wisteria-alba
So sad We have a blue bird hibiscus which has grown well and been beautiful. This year, not a bud, leaf, nothing. It appears to be alive in terms of flexible stems and green when scratched. We are at a loss?
The thing I look forward to most when I return from hols is to see what the gardens done .. but I get the feeling of overwhelming.. it’s like a teenager when the parents go away ! Hopefully it’s not to much hard work Jacqueline 🤞😘
😢😢 Some of the buds on my white wisteria did get caught by the frost after all (the sad looking one at the back). Hard to know why some were caught & others not, as they are all equally unprotected as growing on a pergola as opposed to against the house. There are still lots of buds that look OK though 🤞🏻🤞🏻
That fleece was worth it 💜🤍💜 #wisteria #wisteria-sinensis-alba #wisteria-alba and #wisteria-issai
Thats so pretty 😍😍
Thank you. I love wisteria. Can you tell?! 😂 @gjones
Wow! Simply beautiful 💚
Thank you Laura 😍 @columbiariver
I love it too. There’s only one variety that will survive our winters (blue moon) but I’ve heard its very invasive so I haven’t tried it yet.
I’ve never heard of that one and had no idea if could be invasive though not sure if I’d mind 🤔😉😂 @gjones
Really welcoming walk to the French doors
Oh Joan! I wish they were. Sadly it’s just a bedroom window (we live in an upside down house) 🙃 Though when she’s home my daughter does have a lovely view 😊 @joannie.a
Gorgeous- got couple of flowers on mine for the first time this year - planted it 2020 was about 3’ tall - very exciting. Can’t wait until it looks like yours.💜
Once they start they don’t ever stop Christine 👍 💜 @grandmagizzy
