East Sussex, United Kingdom
I have a problem with some shrubs, cotinus, weigla,deutzia, where the leaves are dying back before they have formed. I cant see anything on them and because the leaves dont mature, cant spray them. They start to burst, then go dry and crinkly. Any ideas?
These were all bought in last year, from various nurseries and are in a new bed, basically sandy, but with horse manure added. They are under a membrane with bark chipping on the top. I have four other beds, also new, but the problem seems to be in this one.The ground has been fallow for about 30 years, having been used as a school playing field.
