Senetti dying

Posted: 09/06/2013 at 13:56

It's on my terrace so gets lots of sun most of the day until about 5pm. I water it regularly, especially now it's been so warm so keep it moist. Too much or too little you think?

I bought a Senetti plant and put it in a large pot with good compost. It was great for about a month but now has curling leaves and the flowers are not really growing and what are are tiny. Picture below. Any ideas?

OK good advice, thank you. I assume the spirals don't inhibit the plants' growth then?

I planted bare rooted beach hedge plants last November. Each has a cane and a spiral to protect them from rabbits etc. They are now all very green and leafy so how long should I leave the spirals on? They seem a bit restricted with the spirals on but not sure if taking them off will harm them. Advice would be really helpful. Thanks!

Thanks so much. Is now the dormant period?

Thanks for your advice. Interesting option on the spray. I'll give it further thought.

ok thanks. I'd been told that you can't tree guard beech hedge plants as they need to sprout from the stems. Do these tree guards not do that?

thanks so much. I'll start preparing the hole! Any advice as to what size hole or what to put in it?
