My vibernum tinus 'Eve Price' is giving off an appalling smell as if something has died! The leaves and blossoms are shrivelling up and turning brown. Is it dying or can it be revived. I have never been aware of a plant smelling so bad!



Believe it or not the smell is coming from an infestation of Viburnum beetles. You need to spray with Provado Bug killer. Prune off any damaged bits back to new good growth and burn or bin them.
