Can anyone help - please? 

I'm really concerned about the tree as many of the leaves are now yellowing

Yellow leaves - help!!

I have a Sorbus aria which is around 3 yrs old and the leaves in the centre of the tree are all going yellow/brown and falling off - see pic. The tree is in quite a shady area although it does get Sun most of the day. I also have yellowing leaves on some of my other plants nearby - a solanum and honeysuckle.

Do you think this is a soil problem - is very alkaline when I tested it? If not, any ideas what could be the cause?

Sad looking Ceonothus

I nearly lost mine last year after moving it at the wrong time. A dose of epsom salts brought it back practically from the dead! It's growing brilliantly this year even after this terrible weather.

Remove Robinia Tree?

I did keep mine as it did eventually come back to life properly last year and it looked lovely albeit a few brown patches on the leaves. However, parts of the tree have small leaves developing this year but much of the tree - especially the top branches look completely dead  

I'm going to give it a few more weeks to see what happens but may take it out as is easiest to do it now whilst still a relatively young tree...

Sorry to hear your trees have both been affected too

 

My dahlia tubers are not doing anything

Mine didnt spring back to life either after overwintering and then potting up for a month  I've just planted mine in the garden and can see a shoot starting to appear (fingers crossed!)

I want to hide the houses at the end of the garden

We went for a mixed screen against our fence of Laurel, climbers and deciduous trees for interest. Can recommend Solanum Crispum as is a great, fast growing climber. We're slowly getting a nice dense screen but it will take a while. Looked into pleached option as we are very overlooked by windows and I'm quite desperate for some privacy in our small garden but was a few thousand iirc?

What tree is this?

Posted: 02/05/2013 at 20:12

I think it might be a Prunus Kanzan as the leaves and flowers look just like mine!

Under trampoline plants?

What a good idea! Half my small garden is given over to the kids trampoline  and i just assumed I had to put up with a dead grass patch underneath...

Watching with interest to see if there are any options

I have an armandii and a solanum both of which have shot up the fence in just a few years. You may need to extend your fence height with trellis though as both these plants grow big very fast!
