Hello, I have problem with my Virginia creeper plant, it's more than 10 years old. Every year we prune it. This year we decided not to prune so it could spread more. Now I've noticed that the leaves and the brunches are drying from the top of the plant to the bottom. Do you know what could cause drying of this very persistent plant. Thank you in advance.

Lots of damp weather can stress plants and invite insects and fungus. Have you noticed any signs of scale or insects? Virginia Creeper is generally a hardy vine and a vigorous grower. You can trim back the vine and try treating it with Neem oil.
