I have a corkscrew hazel growing in a pot (garden is small). It started off well last year but this year all leaves curled up and dried out. I sprayed with a 'bug killer' for various bugs and have added phosphate to water, but didn't seem to help much. No leaves now but tiny buds appearing, though they don't seem to grow much before dying off. Help!!
I don't have any experience with this plant, but since doing research for your question, I'm dying to try it myself. Go to this site: http://homeguides.sfgate.com/care-transplant-corkscrew-hazel-tree-86594.html -- Sorry, I couldn't get it to come in as a link, but the information is very useful. I hope it helps to fix your problem. Happy Gardening!
