Taking a cutting from a wisteria?

If you take the buds off where it comes into contact with the soil also you can dust a bit of hormone rooting powder on just to help speed the process up a little.

If you take them from a wisteria that's vigorous growing they are usually ok and also taken from one that has flowered as well otherwise if you take them from one that hasn't flowered you can wait years for them to flower. Sometimes you can buy a rogue one that may never flower. I have a customer that's had one for ten years and it's still not flowered once. I have only looked after that one for two years though and it's only been correctly pruned by me but not flowered yet. So if you buy one buy it in flower or just after grafted as Welsh said or take cuttings from a flowering one.

If it's 10 years old it will be fine you will probably find it grows back just as big in this season if not bigger.

You can also air layer it if none of the shoots reach the ground.

Winter flowering jasmine- can it be trusted?

If it gets to big you can always dig part of it out(plants for free) as it roots easily.

Jasmines nearly had it!

Jasmine will come back I thought mine was dead at the beginning of the year just all dead wood or so I thought but put the pot outside and never emptied it for some reason and then spotted new growth now it's really healthy and flowering. You may need to let Iit dry out though.

I hope we have a mild winter this time there are lots of bedding plants that over wintered last time. Some of which like the snapdragons have seeded new plants as well.

When dead head make sure you cut the seed head off not just pull the dead petals.

Freesia in flower

Should they be in flower this early as it's still quite cold?
