Q.Why Is My Cotoneaster Dying?

Zone Chepstow, Wales, UK | Anonymous added on May 7, 2024 | Answered

My cotoneaster that you will see in my photograph has grown from a cutting that I took from my grandma’s about 20 years ago. As you can see it has grown into a large tree that has always been beautiful. Suddenly this year it’s leaves have disappeared and no berries have appeared. Can you give me some idea of what has happened to it please? An additional worry is that the same thing has happened to the fuchsia in front of it. As you can see in the photograph it has only it’s very pale branches left. The same thing has happened to my other more mature fuchsia that is an another part of my garden that is not attached to the garden where my cotoneaster is. I do hope you can help me.

The cotoneaster must have been declining for years since it has been pruned so drastically. They may all be suffering from disease but we cannot tell by looking at the photograph. This information should help:
