“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.
