Lilac - poor flowering & dying leaves

Posted: 26/09/2012 at 16:58

I've had a white lilac in the corner of my garden for about 8 years now. Each year it's had more and more flowers on it but this year I had literally only 3 or 4 flowers and they went brown and died almost as soon as they came out.

In addition, the leaves are little odd. For the last 3 years the leaf buds tend to go brown and die before opening, or those that do open go brown from the centre. It's putting on a growth spurt but I'm not sure what's wrong or how to tackle it.

Can anyone help?


Blind raspberries

Posted: 26/09/2012 at 16:54

I've got a similar problem. I've got an autumn fruiting raspberry in a pot. Have had for at least 2, if not 3 years but it isn't doing well. I had fruit this year - a single solitary raspberry! and the the leaves keep going brown. It's very leggy. I'm not sure whether it's sick or quite what to do with it. Have no room in garden for it (garden is tiny) so pot is my only option. It's a very deep pot. Any ideas?
