So less water!

 

I have attached two photos of the dying bay, any comments welcome.

Do bays need ericacious food/compost at all?

What is the best/good compost an plant food for them? Also should I bputting some gravel or bark into the compost to help drainage?

And finally should the potsbee raised off the lawn?

As you can probably tell I'm a complete beginner at gardening!

Cheers

Bay tree dying - Newt?

I have had two bay trees for many months now and recently potted both of them because they looked like they were struggling. I repotted potted them with John innes no.2 and found that there was a newt at the bottom of one of the bays which I think is dying! I have got eracacious plafound and sea quest iron feed, and the leaves are stil going brown! Can the bay be saved? What might be causing it, could it be the newt?!

any suggestion welcome.

thank you
