Wisteria Knocked Over

Anonymous added on April 25, 2014 | Answered

During the winter, the lattice I had my wisteria wound through got blown over by wind storm. The main vine is not broken. There are many runners twined in the lattice. What would be best to get it up and blooming again? Do I prune it all away or carefully break up lattice to get to vine? Any suggestions, please. It just bloomed last year for the first time. It's about 5 years old, and I'm in western Pennsylvania. Thank you.

I would remove the old trellis as best you can and as long as you are not damaging any main trunks, you can remove some of the vine, if it will help. You can also leave some of the lattice attached as well. By this stage, your wisteria will be well established and will recover from any removed growth very quickly but will also engulf any broken lattice left behind pretty quickly as well. Once you set it against the new support, it will probably surprise you how quickly it will take to it.
