Agree about widening that border mardatha.   Shrubs would grow better and look better.  Shrubs need plenty of space.

It's probably hungry Linda.

ordinary soil but with plenty of compost in it.  Don't let it dry out.  Check it's not rootbound. For best start add mycchorrizal fungi to planting hole and fish blood and bone and water it well.

Issues with pugs

doggone it...thought this was a thread about dogs. cur blimey! 

Edwin, what condition did plugs arrive in? How long have you had them? Did you pot them into 9 cm pots ?

i water generously when plugs are potted up.  I cover with fleece if sunny for a few days.  The sun could well have caused your withering problems.

Hate that weed fabric.  Most of us get rid of it eventually. in a garden that fabric should not be used except for path prep.

just as Dave says, dig in compost, manure ....dig in "life" back to your soil
