Forum home Problem solving


I’m no gardener and we’ve recently inherited a well established garden. Our ceanothus flowered vastly in May but since then we’ve got some yellowing leaves, brown branches and sticky flowers! 

We gave horrid chalk/clay soil that’s sticky mud when wet but also get big flints in it! 

Am I overwatering it? Or is it something else?

    This is a photo of Ceanothus from my garden in Pacific Northwest Washington State USA.  I think I have the same problem and would like to know what it is.  There is a lot of crumbly, flaky looking brown debris on the leaves and the flowers are a mass of brown crumbles. I don’t find anything that looks like a bug.
