wisteria is yellow and not growing

bzbmomof3November 21, 2008

Hi, Im new to gardening, so that being said, here goes. Ive planted a 5 gallon wisteria in a whiskey barrel. He's sad and yellow looking. Ive given ironite and to no avail. Regular watering also. What do they like? What am I not doing right? Thanks!

Less is more with Wisteria - no fertilizer is necessary, they are very drought tolerant. Yellowing of the leaves is to be expected at this time of year - it's going dormant. Just let mother nature take care of it. If you go for a month without rain, then you might give it a bit of water, but otherwise just leave it alone. It will re-leaf in the spring.
