The Wisteria likes spreading in all directions. If you set no limits, it grows extremely large. This growth is at the expense of flowering. Get a handle on the tremendous growth of the wisteria by cutting it twice over the summer. Shorten all side shoots in August by two thirds. At winter's end then cut it down again to 3-5 buds.
