Prepare a large hole for your Wisteria and loosen the soil thoroughly with a fork. Ensure a well-drenched root ball - soak it overnight in a bucket of lukewarm water. Plant your wisteria at the correct depth - the top of the root ball should come to just below soil level. Fill the hole with soil, heel well in and water your wisteria immediately after planting. Both varieties of wisteria will thrive in fertile, humus right soil. Improve poor soil with the added mix of well-rotted manure or compost - especially when planting next to a wall. Your wisteria likes to be in full sun.
Both the Japanese Wisteria (Wisteria floribunda) and the Chinese Wisteria (Wisteria sinensis) are strong, undemanding plants. Do give them extra water in periods of drought. A mulch over the winter will be appreciated too.
For a rich growth and flowering of both varieties we recommend training some long horizontal branches along a wall or a pergola.
Wisteria is one of the most beautiful climbers. The lovely scented flowers hang in long, graceful, drooping clusters. Swaying Wisteria branches are very powerful and can damage sensitive materials such as drainpipes. The seeds of the wisteria are poisonous.
