Hi,

We purchased 3 - 3 foot high Bottle Brush plants from a garden centre in Febuary to use as a hedge,  

They did explain they were last years stock and they had been out side all over the winter but said they would be OK, they were in pots but we planted them out in a clay soil straight away as they were very pot bound.

The problem is that they don't seem to have grown at all, the top leaves are still reddish in colour and the bottom leaves are brown with some green leaves between,

They are alongside a south facing wall which gets full Sun, ?when we get any Sun all of the day.

We fed them with Growmore when we planted them out.

My question is should they have started to do something by now

Any advice would be welcome

The Actual name of the plants are - Callistemon Citrinus "Splendens"

Thanks

Brian
