How Do I Transfer My Wisteria From the Stake It Came On

My wisteria came growing on a thin, well-established stake. Is there any way to get it off the stake in order to let it grow up against my post?

It might damage the plant to cut it away from the stake. If it is able to be untangled from it without hurting it, you can do that, but likely your best option will be to set the stake against your post. The wisteria will eventually grow away from the stake and up the post. Wisteria are notorious for not growing the first year and then going wild the second or third year.
