Wilting Wisteria


I have a rather sad looking wisteria and don't know why :-( I've read that it could be mildew - am I right? What can I do to make it better?!  Thanks!imageimage

    Looks fine to me, although a little damaged by frost. May just be that it's in the full sun and wind and it's come from a supplier who has grown it protected under glass. You've put it outside where it has to face the real world and it's finding it difficult. It has probably been used to still, gently warm conditions and real weather is testing it. It'll be fine


  • I hope so! Thank you :-)

    That compost looks very dry.  I suggest you water it.  They're coming into leaf quite strongly now and added wind means they'll be transpiring a lot of moisture.
