Hi, Have two Alberts Gold and both have started to have spires turning brown;
Have had for about two months, planted in large individual tubs. Have kept watered and have fed once. Any ideas please of the cause or remedy.
thanks Ted

On plant Erica arborea



Not sure what you mean by "spires" turning brown?! Maybe the flowers are coming to an end? Browning of the foliage indicates drought so you may not have been watering sufficiently well.

How do I say thanks?
