I have had my tree 6 months and it has never looked good. the leaves are now curling and turning black and the tree has hardly grown. it is planted in mostly sun
any ideas on what i should do

On plant Viburnum tinus



Hello Abandbb.

Have you been watering your tree well?

When I bought a young tree from a nurseries a couple of years ago, the store owner told me that more young trees and bushes die from lack of watering than from anything else.

She told me even if there had been rain, always give the tree base area lots of extra water, just in case the rain didn't reach the roots.

I hope this helps.
