Help! My viburnum is turning yellow!
“I planted a healthy Viburnum rhytidophyllum
one month ago and its leaves are turning yellow. No frost since planting, acid clay soil. I put plenty of my own compost and an appropriate quantity of blood, fish and bone in the planting hole and watered well. Mulched with my own compost and watered when needed.” W Cunningham, Donegal A YOUNG plants are often soft when new from the nursery and can show signs of stress while they adapt to their new conditions. It is likely to grow away fine if the ground is not wet, which causes root-rot disease. Allow the soil to dry a little between waterings to encourage root growth.
