New here today and quite a garden novice!
I have 2 Castlewellan Gold trees which I bought already cut into balls,
the trunks are about 2-2.5ft and the ball about 1-1.5ft. I have them in
pots outside my front door, NW facing, and sheltered. I water them
regularly. One is fine, the other has started turning brown. It started
about 4 weeks ago and seems to be getting worse. I dont know why, I'm
assuming not position as only a door width apart, and assuming not
lack/over watering as cared for in the same way? Any ideas? and
anything I can do to save the tree??
I set up a post a few days ago regarding one of a pair of Castlewellan
Gold(i beleive that is the correct name) which has gone very brown in
patches, dispite being looked after well. The other tree is fine. Since
posting, a friend suggested an aphid that carries a virus may be the
cause??? Something they had heard, and didnt have any other
information...Does any-one know anything about this, and if there is
anything I can do to save my tree. Any help much much appricated.
Beth Chatto had that bug in her trees I seem to recall. One of her books
(the one where she converts her car park into a dry garden) has lots of info
on it and how she treated it if I recall correctly.
