Wood decay of wisteria

Disease Information

Wood decay

Symptoms and damage

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 .

Management

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.
