Worcester's Wisteria

The winter pruning of the wisteria took place during early January, cutting the flower spurs back to two, three or four buds and removing any unwanted long shoots that grew after the summer prune (cutting back the long, wispy growth the plant produces after flowering).

The first of the wisteria to flower were those at the back of the medieval cottages, closely followed by the two on the terrace in the quad. Last to flower, and putting on another wonderful display this year, are the wisteria that cover the railings at the bottom of the quad and the lower archway entrance to the Nuffield Lawn, a favourite for visitors to stand under to have their photograph taken.
