redirecting wisteria

I am looking to redirect my wisteria to a larger trellis - what should I do? What will be the best way to trim and tie the branches? Can this be done now?

Hi, The best time to do this is when the plant is still dormant in the very early spring. If it hasn't broken dormancy yet in your area, do it now. Just understand that if you trim it now, you'll be removing any flowers you would normally get on those branches.
