Very Old Wisteria
Moved to a house 9 yrs ago and had a beautiful wisteria growing around the lounge patio doors. The last 4 yrs we haven't had any blooms or leaves and I am worried for whatever reason it has died. Strangely there are lots of twigs growing wildly, which I have pruned just this weekend, but I really want the blooms back and leaves. The wisteria was there when we moved in so not sure quite how old it was then but it was certainly established and very bushy. There is foliage growing at the bottom of the wisteria. What do I do with that?

If you are having growth at the bottom, this indicates stress to the remaining portions of the plant, but it is still alive. You may need to just prune it all the way back (don't worry these plants are very resilient). Also, you may need to feed it with a balanced fertilizer to encourage growth and flowering.
