Pruning for more wisteria bloom.
About six weeks after March or April flowering, start pruning back new runners. When you cut them, leave two or three nodes of new growth; flowers come from these. If you keep after new growth, the wisteria will start its second season of bloom in summer and continue into fall. This technique is easiest if you train wisteria as a standard (single-trunk tree), but the principle works with any wisteria that's low enough to prune.
