Wisteria up and over?

belladomJune 8, 2013

How do I get this wisteria (on left) to grow on the thin stick we have going over to the trellis? It is growing rather bushy and in our walkway, so should I cut it back, so it grows taller and over to the trellis faster?

Also after the large pots on the right, in the empty space on the ground, I want to put a narrow long pot or raised bed (with bamboo?) to further cover the big blue house.... I can't plant in the ground on this side, as there is a storm drain. Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Wisteria likes to grow sideways, to have it grow upwards you will have to take the branches and twist them or tie them around the trellis.
