My friend has recently bought a Wisteria plant. She has potted it in a large pot with trellis to train it grow up. she is in a flat which is 6 stories high and this is on her balcony. She has just seen that a lot of leaves have large bites on them. do you know what is causing this and if so, how does she get rid of them? Thank You.

There could be many pests that are eating leaves of plants. The best treatment is Neem Oil.
Neem Oil is organic and is safe for people, pets and Bees.

Wisteria is an aggressive growing vine and can easily become invasive. Growing in a large container is possible, but the vines can still infiltrate a homes structure if left to attach itself.
Constant pruning and training unto a trellis will be needed to keep the vine 'contained in the pot'.
