Seasonal effects

The appearance of ramblers changes between seasons. From a bare plant lying dormant in winter to fresh greenery in spring, in full bloom during summer to leaves changing colour and dropping in autumn. This is a natural process courtesy of mother nature. Our plants will be delivered accordingly.

Planting+

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.
 

Training your Wisteria

Wisteria is a climber with rapidly-growing tendrils which they use for gripping to anything it can grab. Train the young shoots to climb in the appropriate direction. This plant is best used as a solitary plant. With some patience, it is even possible to let the Wisteria grow into a standard. Provide support by using a sturdy climbing pole next to the main shoot.

Care+

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.

The Japanese Wisteria needs to be pruned

Wisteria can be pruned twice a year. Tie in several long, horizontal branches and prune all side shoots back to 2 or 3 eyes in January or February. In July after flowering, cut all side shoots back to 4 or 5 leaves. This keeps your wisteria compact and will flower abundantly the following year.
 
 

Extra+

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.
