East Sussex, United Kingdom
We have lost several large well established shrubs this spring ( 2 photinias, forsythia, robinia, hebe, winter viburnum, fatsia and others.) They had all been in over 5 years or more and were in different parts of a large garden. we are on the edge of the Pevensey Levels (East Sussex) with clay subsoil. Last summer was very dry followed by more snow than usual. Most of these shrub started out ok this year, the viburnum bodnantense flowered, the forsythia did too but not very well. Has this been a problem with other people this year or are we very unlucky. There must have been 12 or 13 casualities which will cost well over a hundred pounds to replace.
Any advice would be much appreciated
