Thank you again, Dave. The plants do get the early morning sun so with the frost and wind, the leaves have been well and truly scorched! I will removed all the dead leaves, feed them and cover the roots.
Hello Dave. Thanks for replying. I'm relieved it's not box blight! I live in the South East and we have had quite a lot of frost during the last few weeks. The front of the house is east facing and it has been quite windy for some time so that could be it. What should I do now?
The leaves on the box plants in containers either side of my front door are going brown and falling off. This has all happened in a week! I hope it's not box blight! I really hope someone can help.
I'm not sure whether the photos have uploaded or not!
Sorry to read about your health. In my area there is a local charity where volunteers will come and sort out gardens, among other things, for people who can't manage it for themselves. Perhaps there is something similar in your area? Your local council will know.
Thank you, Fairygirl. I think I will put it in a slightly larger pot, leave that at the back of the border over the winter and see what happens. If I like it, I will plant it out sometime next year.
Thanks again, Obelixx. Actually, I was going to put it in a more decorative container at first but now I will plant it where it will have a chance to shine for at least a short while.
Hello Obelixx and thanks for your response, which I did reply to but I think I must have forgotten to submit! I'm going to leave it in the pot but put it at the back of the border and see what happens. It only cost £2 and if there is any colour in the spring it will have been worth it.
On a whim, because it was there, I bought a reduced price cytisus from b&q. I don't know the variety so I presume it's the common broom. Can I grow it on in a container?
Thank you, Dove. I'll give it a go!
Thank you, Dave. I'll get on to that today.
