Birch Trees

Betula Utilis Var Jaquemontii

Anonymous added on August 7, 2015 | Answered

I have recently bought a silver birch (betula utilis var jaquemontii). I left it in the pot I bought it in for a week before repotting it in a big ceramic pot. It has been in the pot now for 2 weeks and doesn't look too healthy. Firstly, the leaves started turning yellow with brown spots and now they are falling off. The leaves at the very top are still green. I have been watering it daily and I used the compost that the garden centre recommended to replant it. Will it come back do you think? I have a guarantee from the garden centre. Should I take it back?
