Trimming Wisteria Seed Pods

It’s beginning of fall and I wonder if I can trim the excessive wisteria seed pods now and will this delay flowers blooming? Please advise.

Leaves Falling Off My Wisteria Plant

I planted a Wisteria in a pot on my deck last year. It has been growing great, no flowers yet, but noticed that the leaves are getting dead. It is in the sun and has an arbor for it to climb on. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I haven’t pruned yet.

With a wisteria in a pot, I would be willing to bet that it is lacking nutrients. This fast growing plant needs lots of nutrients to grow. Use both a slow release and a weekly water soluble fertilizer. Also, make sure that it is getting enough water. It may need to be watered twice a day if you notice that the pot is dried out when you are checking on it. As for the blloming issue, this article may offer some suggestions to help in the future: http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/wisteria/wisteria-blooming-problems.htm

Winterizing a Wisteria

I have a wisteria I bought this summer and put in a pot. I live in the Spokane, WA area. How can I ensure the plant doesn’t die over the winter? Do I need to have it buried in the ground or can I winterize it in the pot?

Wisteria normally do not make good container plants because they grow too big and too fast. But that being said, in terms of cold, if you live in Zone 5 or higher, it should be fine in a container with no extra care, but if you live in Zone 4 or lower, it will need extra protection. If you are in Zone 4, wrapping it in burlap and hay or leaves or moving it near a south facing wall should protect it enough for the winter. In Zones 3 or less, you would need to move it to a protected area, like an attached garage.

Established in-ground plants require little, if any care over winter. Here is more information on winter care for these plants: http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/wisteria/wisteria-winter-car.htm

Can I Pot Wisteria

Can I grow Wisteria in a pot? I have a bench with a wooden arch trellis over it and would like to plant something in a pot on either side. I would like a creeper that flowers and grows fast. I have tried Diplodenia and they did not grow more than a couple of inches in a year. I am in South Africa in the Western Cape, which has winter rainfall.

Wisteria normally do not make good container plants because they grow too big and too fast. but, that being said, if you use a large enough tub, the vine should be ok in a container. Also, I would make certain that the trellis is going to be sturdy enough to hold its weight as the vine grows larger.

Winter Wisteria Vines

I live in Michigan and have a new wisteria. What care should I provide for winter? I have heard to cover it with burlap. Is that true?

ANSWERS

Typically, a wisteria does not need any winter care, but since yours is a new planting, wrapping in burlap will help ensure it makes it through the winter. But after the plant is established, they are fine without additional protection.

Flowers on Evergreen Wisteria

I have a wisteria growing up around a pergola. It’s lovely and green but has small flowers and not very many. What am I doing wrong? And also when to prune?

ANSWERS

It may simply be in need of some phosphorus, which helps with blooming. Bone meal is good for this. This article will help as well: http://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/wisteria/wisteria-blooming-problems.htm

Wisteria Problems

We have a 40/50 year old Wisteria, which has put on a wonderful show each May. But this year, after flowering, it did not put on its usual summer growth and its leaves are shrivelled and have now turned yellow before the fall. It does not look its usual healthy self. Any ideas?
