Can I prune back my wisteria now?
I live in Harrisburg, PA. I never trimmed my wisteria during the winter (this is my first wisteria and I bought it last spring/summer). Right now there are dead wispy limbs all over the place. Wasn't sure if I could trim those off. I see no buds as of yet (I know it's early), but I don't want to take a chance in ruining it. Any advice would be most appreciated! Thanks so much!

The flower buds of wisteria are produced during the summer (on last year’s wood), so wait until late spring or early summer to prune the vine. This article can help you with pruning: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/wisteria/pruning-wisteria.htm
Thanks Nikki! Guess I have a bit to learn about the Wisteria plant. I'll make sure to prune twice a year. Have a great day! : )
