Choisya Ternata Sundance
I planted one of these in the garden around 3 weeks ago. It is/was looking really healthy until around 4 days ago. I noticed that the middle section of the plant was remaing upright but both the left and right hand sides had started fanning out. On farther investigation this afternoon I found that both these sides we not attached to the middle at all. They lifted right out from the soil.
I investigated and there are not splits in the branches as I would have expected to find if something had crushed it. I removed the other part checked all the root area thoroughly and found nothing feeding underneath either.
Both parts have plenty roots therefore I have potted them up to see if they will grow.
Any ideas on what could have caused this. I didn't manage to take any pictures as I wanted to get them right back into the soil. My thought was that the GC had planted 3 smaller plants into 1 pot to make it look bulkier. Would they do this? Thanks
