Hi Emsy 

Can we see a pic of the whole plant and pot please. What sort of compost is it in?

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?

I agree with Punkdoc ... coppice it this winter and do it every year as he does (it will be easier after the initial big job) and you'll have wonderful foliage as a backdrop to your flowers and to use indoors in flower arrangements.

Gardengirl is the name of a long-time poster, so I would have thought it unlikely to be an advert ... but when I click on her name I get an error ... is something up I wonder?
