Hello all, I have a beautiful old brick house with great old Boston Ivy vines growing all over. We had some die back this year right in the middle of the wall which we have not seen before. I then had some holes appearing in the middle and some munching going on around some of the largest leaves. I talked to the local nursery and got some general bug spray for 'black beetles' that they said were having midnight snacks. I sprayed and it appeared that all was well. Now, about 2 weeks later, I see that I am having the growth (vine) turning brown as well as around the edges on the leaves out towards the ends. I thought that perhaps I was overwatering, as in past years I have kind of ignored it and it grew very well. This year we put in a patio (very careful not to disturb the rooting area by the house) and so I have been watering everything more... I tried starting some other vines around the other side of the house last fall and they seemed to do well earlier, but now they are also getting the brown die back and the leaves turning brown around the edges. Could I have a fungus or another infestation I can check for? Thanks for any and all responses... I will be just sick if I do something to cause a problem or my failure to act causes me to lose these very old vines!
