What have I done to my Norway Maple Globosum?
I planted 5 globosum at front of the garden last summer. 4 came out in wonderful foliage over a month ago. The fifth has green buds but has never progressed beyond that. Is it dead (if I scratch the bark it is fleshy green )? Dormant ? Will it ever recover ? Should I replace ? There is a very slight slope downwards towards the poorly one and a drive way just after it and someone has suggested water is maybe pooling at the poorly one ? Any thoughts ? Thank you
