Q.Crepe Myrtle With Green And Brown Leaves

Zone Bowral NSW | desdichato added on April 23, 2020 | Answered

After purchasing half a dozen Crepe Myrtle last winter, I have successfully planted them at different points around the garden and while the green leaved varieties have put on quite a good display for the first years growth, the red/brown leaved varieties have done nothing and there is no sign of growth in any of this variety but neither have they lost leaves and died. Is there anything I can feed them or do for them to encourage them to grow. Thanks

The best way to encourage growth will be providing the optimal conditions for survival. Only feed if a soil test shows that it is deficient in something.
