Prunus autumnalis looks sick

Posted: 06/06/2016 at 11:56

i planted one of these in the autumn of 2014.  It didn't do much until the autumn when it flowered.  Now it has a only a few sickly leaves and looks dead.  Is it? If not what can I do to help it.  I have mulched regularly and left it to its own devices.

Thanks everyone. Due to limited space and energy it is going to have to be something like Levonsons but appreciate all the comments.

That would be nice but I have nowhere to put a pile of manure. I was thinking along commercial products, but thanks for your reply..

i have been spreading and mulching but have now run out of my own compost.  What does any one else use when this happens.

 

thanks

Clematis

i am looking for a clematis that will be happy in a tub and will climb over trellis. Not over worried about colour or flowering time as long as it isn't too fussy.

 

any ideas?

 

thanks

Ok, the buzz varieties seem to have some disadvantages.  Anyone used any other ones?

 

thanks

ithese seem to be offered in groups of two or three in some on line sites.  I want to replace a normal sized plant with a dwarf variety.. Question is which colour is best for butterflies and would it be best to plant a group of them, would one just look a bit solitary?

also can anyone recommend a nice scented Christmas box plant.

many thanks
