My 2 year old wisteria's leaves have gone yellow & are dropping off, some stems look dead. I've fed & watered it over the 2 year's I've had it. A large fern grows at its foot & something has stripped that nearly bare. I can't see any insects .Any ideas as to what can be causing the problem?

Hi, Jill,
Hmmm..has it had regular pruning? Since it is deciduous, are the leaves dropping earlier this year than last year? How much water does it get?

I'm hoping the leaves are dropping because of the hot weather we had a few weeks back. I did water it well.
I've been tying it in as it only has 3 stems as a framework, with few tendrils.
I've put well rotted horse manure round it ~ keeping the compost away from the main stem.
I did buy it at Wisley, so it should survive! Hopefully, it will sprout new buds in the spring!
