Digging up a Wisteria next to the house
I inherited a Wisteria from the previous owners of our house. It rarely flowers despite me following standard pruning advice each year, and it just produces masses of long whippy branches with an abundance of leaves. I have given it lots of chances, and tried lots of different things to get it to flower over the last 10 years but with very little luck (I'm guessing it may have been propagated by seed). So I decided it needs to go so I can use the space for something nicer. The problem is that it was planted right next to the house and I don't know how to dig it out. And if I do try to dIg it out, will it affect the foundations of the house? The trunk is about 7cm diameter at the base.
