They are both situated in a well protected courtyard but just a fortnight ago they have both started to show signs of dying their leaves have turned brown and brittle is there a reason for this and how do I treat them . I live in West sussex. I do not have photo's of them



Water? It's been very, very dry and windy here in the South. Check the rootballs to see if they're in drought.

Yes soon as I read the name Salix I thought it could be water, they are tough & even if the leaves fall new ones should sprout Id spray the stems in the late evening as well as watering.
