My beautiful wisteria has gone over so quickly, due to the very hot weather and then torrential rain 2 days ago. it's now looking horribly brown and bedraggled and the petals are dropping all over the flower bed below, attracting slugs. I'm wondering whether to deadhead the blossoms as most are within reach on a 5 ft wall. Are there any disadvantages?

I've also given the wisteria an early haircut to remove the rest of the battered flowers and allow more light underneath and then given it a feed. Should get a second flush of flowers in summer.
