Thanks Nut, it has been in the ground for a couple of weeks now. At first I thought it was stress of planting.

Thanks Pete, I don't think it's sun as keeps on coming regardless of sun or not. Ive looked at the stems, the upper ones with leaves are fine. The lowers mainly ok but just a couple of round spots of black. I'll post a photo separately. (I note you aren't an expert but appreciate experience and ideas!).

Oh thanks Pete8, when I googled willow problems that's what it looked like. Any ideas?

Hi all, bought three fancy willows from RHS Catsworth and all seem to have willow blight. I have looked it up and found a suggestion it may have been dormant since the winter (before I bought it).

I'm going to email the company but would like your opinion first, have I done something wrong? Could it have been there when I bought it? or is it just one of those things? 

Thank you

A few questions for bamboo screening please;

What is the ideal (and minimal) width and depth of planters for bamboo?

How close can they be planted together to make a row of 2 metres?

to look something like this?

 Stunning and looks brand new. Did you visit Japan for inspiration ? or books and TV? 30 years ago it must have been very unusual for a garden, just wondered if you had a story behind it?
