Refined wisteria thrives optimally
Refined plants are particularly suitable for a high-stemmed wisteria that should soon start to bloom.
You can get a refined wisteria in nurseries or in well-stocked garden centers, for example. This planting product has a shoot that you have to shorten by about a third of its length in spring. They leave a strong bud standing. The side shoots must be cut off completely.
" Tip: The plant needs a stick to support it. Simply tie the shoot loosely to the stick. So it has enough hold.
Support must then be given again in July. To do this, shorten the new shoots by half and attach the extended main shoot to the support rod.

in the 2nd year
At the end of the following winter (February to early March) cut the new shoots back to 3 to 5 buds. Then put the secateurs back on in June. You shorten the new branches by a third. Now the main shoot is cut at the desired height of the standard. This is how you determine how big the wisteria should be in the bucket.
in the 3rd year
In February or March of the third year, trim the main and secondary shoots again on 3 to 5 buds. Ultimately, the undesirable side shoots of the pruning shears fall victim to July. The wisteria trunk is exposed from the side branches up to the base of the crown.
In future, only the taper cut will be made in February. The crown branches are shortened to the third eye.
