Crossvine help...

Posted by billabercrombie 7 (My Page) on

Hi all, first-time poster here.

I have a crossvine that we planted earlier this year, May 10 to be exact. For the first several weeks it grew like a weed and looked very good. Then, it just stopped growing. The two main runners just quit growing and a third smaller runner did as well. The third runner's leaves at the end are very small and very pale. Some of the older leaves have some reddish splotches on them.

I was watering the vine with about a quart of water every day and haven't fertilized it at all.

Does anyone know why the vine stopped growing? Should I increase or decrease the watering? Add fertilizer? What type? I'm completely new to gardening so any tips would be valuable.

I have some pictures of the vine and will try to post them if this forum allows it.

Thanks for the help,

Putting on root growth. Unless it's outright dying it sounds like no cause for alarm. If you can post a picture it would help. You can post a picture in any forum on GW. No need to fertilize. Rather than watering every day, deep water with a couple gallons once a week if you're getting no heavy rain.
