Kieron spent the day pruning the wisteria that overhangs one of the arches into the Nuffield lawn. Last year the left side was untwisted and attached to new wires, this year the right side was in need of attention.
Two new wires were attached to the wall over the arch and the large mass of twisted wisteria untangled until each stem was seperate.
Once seperated each individual stem was then tied to the new wires to create the new framework.
