Encouraging wisteris seedlings

Posted by LindaSkinner none (My Page) on

I live in Toronto (zone 6) and have started several wisteria seedlings from last year's seeds of an already established plant. The seedlings are about 4" tall and look quite fragile.

Do I need to pinch them back to encourage the woody stem growth that I see on my other plant? If so, can you please tell me exactly when and how to do it?

Thanks you

Linda, what kind of light do you have them in? The better the light, outdoors ideal of course when your weather allows, the sturdier the seedlings will be.

Wisteria has a long juvenille stage from seed. Just giving them time is the best you can do. That stem will become woody as it matures - and I don't mean to discourage you but you need to be prepared to be more than patient if flowers are your goal.
