Hello – I have been trying to look after my wisteria and watering it regularly but it looks floppy, has brown leaves and looks generally unhealthy. Is it infected? I have attached an image. Thank you, Mark

They are drought tolerant plants and don't need a lot of water. I would cut back on the watering if it's an established plant. Brown edges on leaves mean the plant is stressed. Another possibility is the soil is not well draining and the roots are saturated or damaged and can't take up water. If the plant is headed for root rot you may need to move it to a dryer location.
