I bought a Philadephus online at the end of last year and it arrived looking like dry twigs that had long shuffled off this mortal coil. Anyway I planted it in the border, and promptly forgot about it.
This spring, imagine my delight when fresh green leaves sprouted and it appeared to have thrived. And yet a couple of days ago those precious leaves began to look jaded, and now they are very wilted.
What gives? I fed everything with a general purpose feed a couple of weeks ago. I've watered a couple of times a week, but it hasn't been particularly dry, and everything else is fine. We've had a zillion slugs but the Philadelphus leaves weren't touched.
