Graft failureWisteria, like many other woody plants, is propagated by grafting. If this graft union fails, which can be hard to spot and can also happen some years after planting, then the main stem will break off, leading to dieback and poor growth. When graft failure occurs, the top of the plant will tend to look as if it’s dying off.The rootstock on a plant that’s had graft failure will remain alive and produce suckers, but it’s not worth keeping the plant, as it will end up being of inferior quality. The best way to tell if the plant has graft failure is to cut into it vertically through the graft union and you may find dark cork tissue.As well as graft failure, there are root diseases such as Phytophthora root rot and honey fungus, which can also cause the plant to fail.What you should do in the garden in February
