I pruned a rather overgrown wisteria yesterday taking quite a lot off of the growth at the top (not the buds) and also 3 very thick stems growing near the base and middle of the trunk.
Also some of the thick stems/branches have grown into fencing and this is now embedded into the lattice fence panel. Should I leave the panel in there or cut the whole branch off? Pics attached.
Will all of my heavy pruning discourage flowering for this year ? What is the best way to support this wisteria which is currently against a crumbling fence?
I will attempt to add some images of the wisteria now.
