When is the right time to prune a wisteria late April, Early May. I live in Toronto Thank you.

(Answer)

We receive numerous inquiries regarding pruning of wisteria. Here is an excerpt from an earlier post:

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:
