Wisteria Bonsai Help

Posted by Indiana.Matt 6a Indiana (My Page) on

I have three wisteria that I planted from seed about 15 years ago. I would like to dig them and pot them up as bonsai.

How should I go about digging them up?
What time of year?
Do I need to root prune before I dig?

RE: Wisteria Bonsai Help

Go to and also Google Wisteria bonsai cultivation... please don't just 'dig' until you've got more information. This is also the wrong time of year to be doing that. Btw, how would you go about root pruning anything if it's in the ground? Contact a local bonsai club or society for help on what to do and when - the spring should be a better time.
