hi every one,i have just bought a salix caprea pendula, it is in a pot,but have noticed that the leaves are starting to curl and dry up,even though i have kept it well watered in this hot weather ,could it possibly be too much sun ? should it be in the shade ? it ihas been in the sun.many thanks for any help



when you say it's in a pot, is that the pot you bought it in? Does it need potting into a larger container? Check the roots to see if they're cramped. Otherwise, keep an eye on those leaves - this could be the first sign of rust infection, which is common these plants - treatable with a fungicide spray.

rust infection will look like orange dust, spray at the first hint of its beginning - and yes, a bigger pot would be good.
