Pruning Wisteria

(Question)

would you please advise me when to prune wisteria and how much to prune. I have had this plant for years and it seems to have about 2 blooms per year now.

This is a very timely inquiry.  The Toronto Master Gardeners website has a great deal of information on this subject that you can access by searching “Pruning Wisteria”.   As an example, the article below states that mid-summer is a good time to do a pruning and explains how to do it.

In addition to this the Toronto Master Gardeners Guide “How to Get Wisteria to Bloom”  will be helpful:

Hoping you have a lovely summer with your wisteria.
