Q.flamingo dappled willow

Zone Minneapolis minnesota | lyerks added on June 10, 2016 | Answered

I bought it from a nursery store and I planted it and within a few days, the leaves turned brown. What can I do? I have had one previously at another house and did not ever see this problem. Does it need more water, or is it just the replanting? I put a fertilizer stake a few feet from it. Is that the cause?

The browning could be a mixture of stress from replanting, lack of water, and fertilizer burn. It is usually best to let the roots acclimate to their new spot before fertilizing. Remove the dead leaves and keep the area very moist for a few days to see if any new growth appears.
