Can we have a thread to collect everyone’s wonderful wisteria photos (and pruning tips etc)...? I’ll post pics of mine later, when the sun comes out...

    Our two - inherited so no credit other than annual pruning regime and feeding since we arrived.   The top one faces east and is against the garage wall.  The bottom one faces south and is against the annex wall (ex pig house apparently.

    My Alba is nowhere near ready to flower, I'll be lucky to have some by the end of May.🙄

    It seems the white ones flower later here too and in Belgium the purple ones didn't get going till early May.

    As my plant is only a year old @Obelixx I'm trying to look after it and not expect too much too soon while it settles in, but I am impatient. 🙂

    Here’s our wisteria... about 12 years old. Looking the best it’s looked, although it looks a little weedy compared to @Obelixx's amazing specimens!

    Are you doing the correct pruning in summer and winter?   This helps promote flower bud formation as opposed to just foliage.

    When we inherited ours they had been neglected a few years so there were shoots heading off under gutters, heading for roof tiles and also growing beyond the bounds of their buildings.   It was autumn so easy enough to see what needed cutting back completely as soon as all the leaves fell.   

    Since then it's had the pruning as advised on the RHS website and an annual feed.

    Went to RHS Wisley yesterday and their Wisteria are in various stages from just a few blooms to nothing much at all yet,but all look ready to go any time soon!
    Give them a bit more time!
    The Wisteria on the Wisley house was the most advanced in the whole garden (right of photo).
