Sick Sumach stags horn

Posted: 31/08/2016 at 20:26

Hi folks,

We have a lovely sumach which has been happily growing and doing it's thing for about 10 years now with no problems.

Recently several branches just seemed to bend over from the point where they emerge from the soil. Three are almost horizontal. Today I noticed a black sticky substance oozing from the main stem and also a small rotten white stump of a broken branch, low to the ground.  The main stem has turned red overnight.

We presume whatever is causing the problem is fatal? Other shrubs and herbaceous planting around the sumach seems unaffected.

We fear a slash and burn is the only remedy. Help please?

Thanks folks, will cut into the plants and see if any brown stain. Fingers crossed.

Pyracantha leaf problem

Can anyone help please? Established pyracantha growing up wall. Leaves nearly all have a 'silver' look in the centre, extending the length of the leaf. On closer inspection the top layer of the leaf has separated from the rest of the leaf but remains attached at the edges, so this 'silvering' is the top layer sitting apart from the rest. Any ideas why this has happened and if we need to do anything about it? If so, what?
