Moving Wisteria Shoots

I have a Wisteria vine with runners and shoots.  I want to move some of these shoots to other parts of my yard. How and when do I need to do this? Can I cut them and put them in a pot until they get a little bigger to plant?

All you need to do is dig them up to move them. Now (spring) is the best time to do this and yes, you can keep them in pots until they get bigger.

Transplanting Wisteria Seedlings

I have a beautiful Wisteria vine in front of my home. I think it is as old as the house! I potted two of the seeds this year and they came up in thin green stems. The stems are growing very high. Are they supposed to grow so high? They do not seem sturdy. Should I transplant them into the ground now? They are about 15 cm high. There does not seem to be any ‘log’ to the plant, only vine. Should I trim the tops to nourish the middle?
Please help. This is my first attempt, as I just moved to this house and the flowers are so very beautiful. I would like to start another vine in the backyard.

I would keep them potted for another season and then transplant. These articles should help for future reference: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/vines/wisteria/transplant-wisteria-vines.htm

Keeping a Wisteria

Can Wisterias grow in a 16 inch pot?

ANSWERS

Wisteria grow rapidly. While it could stay in that pot for a year or so, after that you would have a hard time providing enough water for the plant in that pot.

Wisteria Vines

Is it possible to grow a perennial wisteria in a large pot on the deck?

ANSWERS

Wisteria normally do not make good container plants because they grow too big and too fast. But that being said, if you're using a big tub, the vine may make it. It won't stay small though.

Wisteria Black Spot

I have noticed black spots on the lower leaves of my potted wisteria. Can you tell me what they are and how to get rid of them? Also, if I plant it out, will it last or is this something that could kill it?

Leaves on Wisteria Plant Turning Yellow and Falling Off

I have three wisteria plants growing in planters. Two are 4 years old and one is 6 years old. The six-year-old plant blooms every year, but the problem is that all the leaves on each plant is turning yellow and falling off. I live in sunny Florida and it’s been really hot, but I water them often. My neighbor has a dog, whom I have seen urinating on my plants. Could you advise why my leaves after all these years are turning yellowing and falling off?

Wisterias are pretty tough, so I doubt it's the dog. Your plants may be pot bound or the soil may be depleted of nutrients. While wisterias don't need much fertilizer, they do need some nutrients to survive.

A Sick Potted Millettia Reticulata Shrub Wisteria

This wisteria was doing fine, blooming good, then temps got up over 100 F for 2 weeks. The leaves started veining bad, so I put half cup iron plus on it. Leaves kept dropping. The pH is 6. I have 2 other U. S. wisteria in ground (vines). When they vein, I throw a little iron on them and the leaves turn back dark green. I know pH 6 is about right, but are they prone to some kind of soil fungus? Don’t have much time down in southern Texas, Zone 9b. Thanks.

In that kind of heat, in a pot, the plant may not be able to take up enough water so that it can take up the iron it needs. Increase water to the plant and that should help. Plants can only take their nutrients up in combination with water. Not enough water will mean not enough nutrients. Plants in pots need much more water than plants in the ground as the water can evaporate quickly, especially in high heat.
