The wood of old plants can be
attacked by a fungus that causes the Prematura death of the plant. Not much can
be done except remove completely the dead wood, cutting back branches up to
healthy looking wood .
possibly using sterilised tools ( to avoid ulterior contamination
sterilised also after use ) and then paint the surface cut with a fungicide
paste: this will help to stop other infections to penetrate the cut. If this
operation is accurately done it will restore itself to normal health.
