I would like to know how to train a wisteria to grow along a wood picket fence. How should it be pruned and secured?

The following article discusses pruning strategies and overall care for wisteria, including diagrams. I think it will help you with your project.

However, I should probably caution you that a wisteria vine is large, heavy and strong enough to break apart a picket fence in time. I have seen them with a trunk the thickness of a man's leg! So I am not sure I would recommend planting it along a wood picket fence -- although a sturdy iron one might be okay.

Good luck with your project!
