Wisteria in bloom

The photograph shows the wisteria in April 2014.

Since then it’s extended onto the structure to the right, and also flowed into the arms of a rambling rose which forms an archway over some steps below.

I’ve never pruned it before.

The first job was to cut down the hefty lowest arch of the rose bower so that going down the steps isn’t so challenging – a sad task because it had so many healthy shoots on it.

Then, tomorrow or sometime, I’ll have to follow the snaking stems of the wisteria with my eye so as not to cut off something too vital.

Apart from being tangled and intertwined, the wisteria is rather too big for its location. With a plant like this, you could cover a whole house!
