I have a wisteria vine that I have transplanted from a pot into the ground and the tips of the plant are brown. What is causing this? Thank you.

The tips of the leaves will turn brown if the soil remains too wet. (Salt burn from too much fertilizer can do the same but you didn't mention that you had fed your plant.) Try watering less frequently. A good, deep soak once a week is better than a daily sprinkling.

Best wishes with your garden!

will (can ) the Wisteria leaves rejuvenate after they turned brown or should you wait for the leaves to fall off and will the stems form new leaves. ?????
