SALIX 'Flamingo'

Posted: 07/06/2015 at 07:39

Debbie, I wo der if your salix has dried oit a little.  They need some water in dry weather.  That new it all green?

again. PN it sounds like a couple of issues fhere but perhaps drying out.  brittle ends and dying leaves suggests lack of water.  Picture will help though

Bamboo - what am I doing wrong?

Posted: 06/06/2015 at 19:45

I find bamboo does not like growing in least they take time to get accustomed.  Ironically, if in the ground they grow aggressively.

they like water but not too much.....possible you are over watering on a daily basis Saimtdoglet?

Why is my Picea glauca Daisy's White going brown?

Posted: 06/06/2015 at 17:41

Picea glauca needs ericaceous compost.  I would use john innes ericaceous

however, if its browning on one side it also suggests wind burn.  If you're using ordinary mpc your plant will dry out too thus making it vulnerable to the wind I think
