Wisteria are best planted in a moist but well-drained soil of sand, clay, chalk or loam within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area of full sun or part shade. Full sun is preferable as this will ensure flowering is more prominent. Wisteria are well suited to flower beds and borders or wall-side borders within cottage and informal garden settings.

Dig a hole that is as deep as the root ball and twice as wide to accommodate their eventual growth. Each plant should be spaced 3-5m (10-16ft) apart, ensuring they are not causing detriment to companion plants.
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 winter or after the flowering period, removing at least half of the prior year’s growth.
It is possible to propagate Wisteria by layering, softwood cuttings, hardwood cuttings or grafting.
