Saw this about fatsia japonica and thought I would ask the following.
My plants are about ten to twelve years old and do all the normal things like wilting, yellowing etc. However this year we have had a lot more rain than usual and some of the plants have stems/trunks that seem to be dry in the centre and green on the perimeter and they are dying. Is this due to root rot or something?

Not sure what that could be really - you will obviously have pests and diseases there that we don't have here, but its true they like well drained soil.

Thanks Bamboo. I think it will be the soil and water combination. I have had the soil broken up and added goat muck. The weather is much drier now so hopefully the new plants that I have put in will be fine.
