Nice... Let´s hope now that it might recover well and fast enough.

Keep us posted. Let´s see if it can endure the incoming (almost here) winter and next spring starts to thrive... or not. Keep your fingers crossed and good luck.

Good, good... I´d still give it a year before start doing nothing with it. Let it heal for one more growing season at least. And, of course, keep us all apdated ;)

Wisteria grows like mad so I guess there is gonna be a lot of cutting around it in the summer.
And after flowering I will do some minor carving on the lower trunk.
Once it´s alive and taken care of properly its safe to play with it I´d say, I see it in our garden where the mother tree grows like weed sprouting from the ground and trunk as well every few weeks :)

good that it's alive, but i'm sorry to say that you airlayered a very ugly piece with several inverse taper problems and barely any interesting features..

Alive and flowering. Well done!

Is spring that far already where you are?

Thanx :)
Not really, temperatures are around 0°C at night, supposed to get warmer next week to about 6 at night, but I store this wisteria in unheated room in my house and it is warmer there than outside.
I will probably wait another month before I move it outside (depending on weather).
