A Tangled Mess

What to do when faced with a Wisteria that has not been prunned for several years? Turn around and run? Lucy and Ali set to the challenge, but where to start?
Having studied the tangled mess they decided to start at the top and and work their way down. Next they removed the dead, diseased and damaged wood and then anything remaining was reduced to what would be a manageable height in the future. Having then replaced a few of the old wires and tied in the stems, the Wisteria was starting to take shape.

Finally, after a day working on the tangled mess, they stood back to admire the results of their labour. At last, a Wisteria with a framework, which would be used to prune back to in the coming years.
