Plants are like people.....good years and bad years. Sometimes we need do nothing and the plant will thrive following year. Fruit is good example of this...bad year is often followed good one.
I did recover my laburnum years back by pruning but it simply wasn't a good clone.
I totally agree with joe.....education is the key to poisons in garden and environment. Just not growing such plants is not the answer.
