I bought the willow three days ago looking really healthy. I have not yet planted it in the garden but it looks almost dead now. Do I cut off the dead or leave it? Should I plant it out now or leave it until it recovers?
This article will help determine if the plant is still alive and what you can do for it: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/plant-problems/environmental/how-to-tell-if-a-plant-is-dead-and-how-to-recover-an-almost-dead-plant.htm
I live on Long Island and planted a Hakuro nishiki shrub last fall. It gets full sun and has grown beautifully, but I've just begun to notice some of the leaves turning brown. Is there anything I should be doing? I did give it a light fertilizer in the early spring. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I love this shrub!
It sounds like leaf scorch, which is caused by too much sun.
