Whats wrong with my aubrieta ?
At this time of year I see hundreds of walls decorated with beautiful flowering aubrietas - and am very jealous.
I have tried growing them to trail down dry stone walls in a number of locations in our garden - they start as lovely bushy plants from the garden centre, but by the summer they are either dead, or consist of long brown stems with a couple of leaves still growing at the end. It almost looks like something is eating any leaves that are trying to emerge along the stem.
I have tried in sun and shade. We have acid soil.
Has anyone any ideas?
