Help! Grapevine dying.

We have lived in our current house for 2 years. unril recently, there was a very healthy grape vine (vitis coignetia) growing over a walkway. However, this summer, most of the leaves have browned and shrivelled. Any ideas what's causing this, and what we can do? There is another grapevine nearby also not looking as healthy as usual, and a wisteria too. Thanks for your help!

    Whereabouts are you?  It sounds like it may simple be frost damage or dessication by strong northerly winds experienced recently across the UK and  parts of France.

    If so, the plants should recover.

    I suspect the same culprit as you Obelixx ... that freezing wind that blasted the UK at the beginning of the month....... not just the clematis and vitis cog. etc, but image

  • Thanks for the replies. We're in Oxfordshire. Hopefully it's what you describe and they will recover. It would be a real shame to have to dig then out and start again.
