Untimely deaths in South Bucks: diosma, black bamboo, false acacia .
This spring I have lost 2 Diosma in different locations, both 3 year old plants. My guess is snow/frost earlier this year. I plan to replace. Any other common causes in case I may be able to prevent repetition ?
Also I feel I am losing a mature black bamboo clump of c 100 canes , 8-10ft tall which is failing to go into leaf for the second year running.
In the same area of the garden I have lost 2 false acacias aged 15-20 and 25ft tall which had some leaf formation last year but are now all but dead and need to come out . No signs of disease in either. Q: Are bamboo and acacia both susceptible to dry conditions or maybe I shouldnt look for a common cause of these coincident but premature failures?
Any thoughts most welcome . Thank you
