why wont my cornus grow

Posted: 15/05/2017 at 11:52

what sort of cornus? Have they got leaves?

Feeding doesn't help until they're growing

What is the soil like outside the compost? If it's heavy clay it can be difficult for roots to move from the compost to the clay. Were they bare root or in pots. If they were in pots were they pot bound and did you tease the roots out a bit if they were.? They don't take up moisture well if they're like that.

Mulch and ground cover prevents evaporation. It works. 

I never water my garden except for new plantings. I choose perennials suitable for the soil I have rather than water hungry annuals/dahlias etc

Of your points

1. droopyness is often a sign of dryness

2. Evergreens don't keep their leaves forever, old ones turn yellow and fall, new ones grow

3. those new leaves are normal

Can anybody please ID this rose?

can we have a look at the leaves. They're quite distinctive in rugosa. The little bits I can see don't look like it

yep, It works. That's goodbye forever. I don't use it often but when I do it's permanent.
