Summer Pruning Wisteria

Ali and Simon spent the day pruning the largest of the wisteria that cover the railings at the bottom of the quadrangle. The team prune the wisteria twice a year, once in the winter and once in the summer, much prefering the lovely sunny days of the summer prune rather than the cold days during the winter prune. Since flowering in May, the wisteria have put on a huge amount of long, wispy, tangled growth and needs this prune to keep it looking tidy, until the team return with their secateurs and long reach pruners for its winter prune in January.
