Can I plant wisteria pods?

By Ellen Brown

Question:

Can I plant wisteria pods or should it just be the seeds?

Hardiness Zone: 8a

Answer:

Pat, you can just plant the seeds. Nick the seeds just slightly and soak them overnight before planting them. Wisteria like full sun (at least 6 hour a day) and nutrient-rich well-drained soil that is slightly acidic (pH 6.0-7.0). Sow seeds indoors 6-8 weeks before expected transplant date or directly into the ground after danger of frost has past. Seeds should be planted approximately 1/2 inch deep and because seedlings grow quickly, they should be provided with climbing supports pretty early on. Seeds may take as long as 30 to 60 days to germinate. Wisteria remains in a juvenile state for a long time before reaching maturity. Be prepared to wait as long as 10-15 years or longer before you see any flowers.
