- 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 hours 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 passed.
- 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.
