Japanese Wisteria - Knowledgebase Question

Question by spookhill

We have had a Japanese Wisteria that we planted about 6 years ago & it never blooms. The plant/tree itself has gotten very large & we do trim it back several times during the growing season. What can we do to get it to bloom? Thanks.

First of all make sure you are not overfertilizing. Next, if you are truly frustrated, you can try "root pruning" by cutting deeply with a sharp spade on just one side of the vine. This may stress it and stimulate it to bloom. Alternatively, there is always patience. Maybe this will be the year!
