Have I killed my cypressas? :(
I had great success asking you all about another garden problem, I thought I'd come and ask for help with new woes (I don't think horticulture is my forté!)
I have had some cypressas which were due to be planted shortly after I bought them last year. Unfortunately building work got delayed and I wasn't able to get them in the ground as they would have been damaged by rubble and lime mortar run off. So I kept them overwinter happily on a south facing ledge but haven't really given them consistent care/watering (other than feeding them earlier this year and slightly erratic watering trhoughout the summer).
I guess my question is, have I killed them? There are some signs of green still, but they are looking pretty sorry. Is there anything you can recommend to help bring them back to life it they haven't quite carked it yet?
I think the first thing I should do is move them as the remaining cypressa which was placed in a much more sheltered place is still thriving (even with my neglectful care).
Some pics of the sorry trees attached.
Thank you in advance!
