Planting and flowering details
  • Planting
  • Make sure the root ball of the ‘Alba’ is suitably moist by soaking it in a bucket full of lukewarm water overnight. Prepare a suitable hole in fertile, moist but well-drained soil. Improve the soil by adding some compost and garden fertiliser, especially when planted near the wall. Plant the root ball at the appropriate depth in the hole - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly down. Water immediately after planting. Wisteria belongs in full sunshine.
