Wisteria Problem

We have a lovely wisteria growing along an old wall. The plant must be around 50 years old, possibly more. It flowered ok in the spring but has since lost all its leaves: they have shrivelled up, gone crisp and fallen off. I have checked but can't see any marks on the leaves and the root seems fine. 

I have pruned back these dead bits and as I write I have the hose watering the ground which is extremely dry.

Any thoughts about what else I can do.  the neighbours each side have fantastic plants too but they are fine...

    Wisterias need lots of water, the hose will probably do the trick, hopefully

    Did you cut it back after flowering? The good watering should help.  I'll be cutting ours back when the flowers have gone, won't be long now. Keep watering.image
