Additional Information

Each spring, apply a layer of compost under each plant and a layer of mulch to retain moisture levels and to deter weed growth. Water plants regularly if the soil becomes dry, taking care especially in periods of prolonged dry weather. Once established, you can prune Wisteria during the winter or after the flowering period, removing at least half of the prior year's growth. All parts toxic if ingested. Propagate by seed in autumn or spring. Fully hardy perennial.

"Thank you ladies for your beautiful plants.
Praise also, for the Bulrush Compost, of which I have purchased 8 bags during the past six months. It is superb and my garden has flourished.
Bless you,
Kind wishes"
