Essex, United Kingdom
I am a newbie to the site, but am desperate for some help with my new 'Escallallonia Peach Blossom'. I have only had it 2 months and purchased it at a very good garden centre with another one. We explained to the man that we wanted something on our front porch that could withstand windy coastal conditions and he said that this was the plant for us!!
The man then retrieved the big pots and special compost for us to pot them in and off we went to pay for the £50's worth of gardening goodies!!!
One of them is doing brilliantly, all shiny green leaves, nice and bushy and we've even had some pink flowers from it, but the other one on the other side of the step looks dreadful! It's gone all brown and stick like, has almost no green leaves whatsoever - it looks like it's been scorched in fire. The branches can actually be snapped off and the bark is all dry, brown and dead!! Help, what can I do to rescue it???
The man said that I could water it with some tomato feed in the water - so it's had some of that...but to no avail.
Please, I hope someone can help me rescue it....
