When is the best time to plant a wisteria? We have just moved into a new home and are planning the garden from scratch. I have the most perfect wall for a wisteria but want to give it the best start in life.
I have a Wisteria (Frutescens I think) Amethyst Falls. It is in a pot as it was a gift last year and a suitable spot could not be found to plant it. It had two flowers in the spring and we are thinking of planting it by our old "stepped" chimney which is attached to the east wall (stone). Would it survive? It is a sheltered spot and spent the winter there, but I moved it in March to a south facing wall of our garage. Can you help, please? Many thanks. fiona10
