Q Why is my plant wilt­ing at the tips? VIKKI NE­WARK, GREATER MANCH­ESTER

Garden Answers (UK) - - Problems Solved -

A There’s a fun­gal dis­ease called clema­tis wilt that af­fects large-flow­ered hy­brids, but this is more likely to be the re­sult of your plant suf­fer­ing from hot, dry soil and in­suf­fi­cient wa­ter­ing in sunny weather. Slugs and snails graz­ing on young shoots, vine wee­vils in the soil or rot­ten roots could also be to blame.

Keep clema­tis well wa­tered
