2nd year plants, and I have noticed that there seems to be a problem with the bines falling off near their branches, possibly rotting off. The rest of the bine itself appears to be in ok condition until after it falls off.
Even the main bine (approx 8 ft) on one of my plants succumbed to this early death.
Is this a known issue? perhaps some sort of infection or bug/animal attack?
Weather has been pretty wet here in Portland, OR but the plants have seen some sun.
Ill try to get pics and variety of the worse affected plants when I get a chance.
