That photograph looks very like my wisteria - even the bricks are the same! It manages to break its wire support structure on a regular basis, and currently seems to be holding itself up by magic. It's set off round to the front of the garage now, and is clinging on to the garage gutter - probably not a good idea, I'm sure, but it flowers beautifully every year. I think I'd better go and check if it needs some attention
We inherited a tangled mess of wisteria on our allotment by the shed. Is there any saving it by pruning it back? It has never flowered but is abundant with lovely leaves each year.
Give it a really hard prune back to the main stems. Next year it will grow new shoots. Cut these back by two thirds in August, and back to 3 buds the following March. Then if it doesn't flower, dig it up and chuck it out.
