I have a Viburnum that has been established a couple of years, it has already flowered and now the leaves are wilting, i wondered if it had been recent dry conditions, although i have watered it regularly just because it wasnt looking very happy and i have recently given it a covering of fish blood and bone, wonder if its being attacked by something? would appreciate anyones incite.



Most likely drought - when you say you've been watering regularly, precisely how much and how often and in what matter have you watered it?
If there's no sign of holes in leaves or anything else, leave the hose running on a trickle at the base of the plant for at least an hour.

Upsydaisy, if you find leaving the hose trickling as suggested works and the plant looks better, can I suggest you read my blog on Watering - find it by clicking on my avatar, then selecting blogs on my page - its not very long to read.
