Q.Sick Dwarf Burning Bush

Zone Sheridan, Montana 59749 | Anonymous added on June 7, 2018 | Answered

What do these little guys need to get healthy? New to this gardening spent a lot of time above the Arctic Circle, Barrow,Alaska and we grew nothing except house plants and they did not do very well.

DSC 7802 is doing the best since I put the bark around and am watering him in the morning.

DSC 7801 had a rough start as the deer got to him and he was really slow to get his leaves now not looking good yellow brown leaves.

DSC 7800 is having the hardest time, I added bark around the two that are not doing very well and they still look like they are drying up and loosing there leaves.

The drip irrigation is not completed yet and I read they do not like to get sprinkled. Well right now that is what the have to get as the dwarf Japanese junipers are still brand new baby plants.

Thank you for sending us your gardening question.

There appears to be a moderate amount of "leaf scorch", which could be due to water deficit, fertilizer burn, herbicide contamination/over-spray, or water quality. Are you by chance using recycled water/grey water?
