Could we possibly get a photo? use the little icon on the top right of the new message box

Some of the older leaves do tend to die off as the new ones come through.

They are Senetti's MrsG. Beautiful plants that just keep going and going if deadheaded regularly!

My Astilbe is almost flowering as are lots and lots of different Alliums, I'll get some pics as they come through.

Camellia and Honeysuckle

Funny thing is that those plants you see around it are only recent additions, within the last few weeks.

There is a Flamingo Salix Standard planted in the centre of that bed though.

The only place I can keep it in a container gets a minimum of around 5 hours sunlight between now and autumn, much more in high summer. Would it be ok in a container there if I keep it well watered?

The reason I chose where it is was because it has good natural light but not blazing direct sun.

Yes its acidic and I also incorporated Ericacous Compost to help it along, it has also had a liquid feed this Spring. Could it be the winter wet that has caused the leaf drop?

I'm also thinking the Honeysuckle has black spot, I'll try a weak fungicide to see if that helps, I dont want black and yellow honeysuckle leaves everywhere again this year

The Camellia was only planted last Autumn and isnt very big, as you can see some of the leaves are black and there are a few buds coming from the stems.

Pruning isnt going to help the matter and it has been well mulched and fed.

The Honeysuckle suffered from this same problem last year and the leaves just turned brown and fell off, it isnt Powdery Mildew thats for sure.

Possibly some other fungal infection?

Thanks for the reply though.

Anyone else have any experience of these problems?

Bit worried about 2 plants in my Garden although I probably shouldnt be as they are still growing fine

The 1st is my Camellia which is dropping some of its leaves, it flowered fine though

The 2nd is my Honeysuckle which seems to have tiny specks on the leaves of the whole vine.

Anything I should worry about?

I would suggest getting them strong in a 1L sized pot before putting them in the garden
