Wisteria looks simply fascinating in a garden. If you can't see enough of the flower, you can easily multiply wisteria. Here are 3 different options.
In summer, when the blossoms pour blue or purple from the wisteria over house facades and vine arbors, they not only bring a picturesque sight to amateur gardeners and flower lovers.
This idyllic splendor encourages many garden lovers to multiply wisteria and to enrich other parts of their property with the young climbers. There are 3 ways to multiply the wisteria:
- with the help of seeds
- with cuttings
- with lowerers
➲ Wisteria multiply with seeds
You can use seeds from your own wisteria for propagation or you can also use wisteria seeds from gardening retailers. That is entirely up to you.
Towards the end of July, around 10 centimeters long seed pods developed from the flowers of the creeper plant. The seed rests in it. You can now pick the pod-like pods and place them in a bowl. A short time later the dry pods burst open and their seeds were released.
Slightly scratched the grains soak in the water for a day. Then the seeds are placed in a mixture of sand and seed soil. It is best to use small pots for this.
It is important to keep the seeds in the pots always moist.
It is helpful to create a microclimate for constant moisture in the seedlings. For this, place the pots in a transparent plastic bag with a pressure seal. Finally, put a little water in this bag, mixed with a few drops of universal fertilizer and close the pressure cap.
Further pouring is not necessary since no moisture can evaporate from the plastic bag.
The bags with the pots can now be placed on a window sill. For a good microclimate in the plastic bags, choose a warm place. A temperature of 25 degrees Celsius is advantageous during the day and at night around 20 degrees Celsius.
➲ Wisteria multiply with cuttings
If you prefer to propagate the wisteria with cuttings, cut fresh shoots of the same year from the climber in July. Now the approximately 8 centimeters long seedlings are put into plant pots with moist garden soil.
Make sure that the soil in the pots is kept moist regularly. However, you should avoid accumulating moisture.
Now place the plant pots in a partially shaded place. Direct midday sun stresses the seedlings. As soon as the roots can be seen, the soil in the pot is well rooted. Now you can plant the young wisteria plants in place.
For a good result, it is recommended to use several cuttings. Sometimes growing individual seedlings can fail.
➲ Wisteria multiply with countersink
It is rather uncomplicated to multiply wisteria with countersinks. Countersinks, also known as countersinks, are shoots close to the ground of the mother plant, which are lowered to the ground, heaped with soil and fastened. The sinker and mother plant are not separated. New roots emerge at the point where the shoot has been sunk into the soil and an offshoot of the wisteria is emerging.
Find a strong shoot from the wisteria in early summer. Carefully steer it onto the floor. Then pile it up with earth or dig it about 15 centimeters deep into the ground. For a good hold of the countersunk or buried countersink, it is fastened. For this you can use a stable wire or a stone bent into a hook. After a short time, new roots emerge at the point where the plant shoot was attached.
In the spring of the following year, the countersink developed enough strong roots and can be separated from the mother plant.
