Thanks Joyce and Punkdoc. 

I feel such a fool contacting the Doc again and saying " it's happened again!"

See original post

 To be blunt Hosta my dear, you'll be a fool if you don't!!!   How are they to know what's going on with you unless you tell them ... now get on that phone!!!

Wonky has been thinking hard Joyce ... there have been phone calls ... there is a list

As OH is at work today I'm using his laptop at the moment ... bless him and I'm having a dippy egg and sourdough toastie soldiers

Good to see you back LilyP

NannyB glad it's been calm down your way - it's still a bit blustery here but not as bad as it was ... it is, however, very wet ...

Ok, now we can see what we've got   Now for some questions ...

When were they planted?

Is there a membrane under that gravel, with the trees planted in holes in the membrane?

What's the soil like that they're planted in? 

How much water have they been having, and how often?
