Cherry Laurel Yellow Leaves

I think that they'll be fine - although they're pot grown they've had a change of environment - they're looking pretty good to me.  Don't over water them - a good soaking once a week or twice a week in hot dry spells should be fine. this time next year you'll have a lovely hedge

Lots of information/descriptions of various cherry varieties here


Also a highly recommended supplier of fruit trees.  I've been very happy with my purchases and I know others who are also very pleased.

As I understand it, as well as selling their own roses, David Austin supply other authorised stockists to sell David Austin roses.  

I would contact David Austin and tell them where you bought the rose and what has happened.  

If the seller was an authorised stockist I would imagine that your rose is covered by a warranty of some kind.  

If someone was selling David Austin roses without authorisation, or passing other roses off as David Austin roses, I'm sure David Austin will want to know about it

Hi Yviesteve and welcome 

Allium - I remember a very long time ago my son proudly announcing that he'd pulled up all the dead sticks from the garden and put them on Daddy's bonfire - yes, you've guessed it .... the newly planted blackcurrant bushes   He's 42 and hasn't forgotten the look on my face
