Q.Can I Cut Back A Wisteria A Lot?

Zone London | Tam990 added on October 27, 2020 | Answered

I am moving home soon and I have a 8 year old potted wisteria that I would like to take with me. Problem is that it’s very well wrapped around my railings and even produce 1 flower bloom this summer. I also think the roots may have gone through the pot. I do not want to stress it too much but is there any way to prune it back for transporting to new home?

You can prune these back pretty heavily with no ill effect. They may fail to flower for a few years after, but it will not kill them.

Here is an article for more information on hard pruning:
