Help please with my diseased tree

Posted: 14/06/2016 at 07:40

It has the look of damage by the viburnhams beetle and its larvea. Can you post a picture of some healthy leaves?

No where near a Philadelphus.

Pete hydrangea like a moist soil which doesn't dry out. You may have too much drainage in your raised bed. They're tough shrubs and some leaf discolouration isn't unusual if they're stressed in any way.

Charity so much is poisonous in the average garden that if we all worried about it gardens would be either paved or grass. Animals won't touch poisonous plants and children will rarely eat garden plants. Aconitum is a plant to be wary of but almost everything else is fine to grow.

Yes pick off affected leaves and burn. Simplest solution.

Sorry re read it was a rambler they need the flowered stems taking out every year after flowering. This gives you new stems to produce flowers every year. Mind you it might need a total renovation.

Sounds like it needs renovating really. Climbers need renovating every few years or even yearly really. If you post a picture I'll tell you what to do.

What do I do now?

Leyllandii can just die after cutting back in my experience. Normally they just continue to grow even if you take half a side away. But it's happened to me, did one for one client and next year dead.

It'll probably throw up new growth. In the meantime you could cut off the snapped base and trim just above the first leaves pop them in a gritty compost and pop a plastic bag over the top and mist daily. They look to have some tuber on them. You may get some free new plants.
