Cornus sanguinea 'Midwinter fire'
A few weeks ago, I bought some small plants and planted in my border. I added plenty of leaf mould and rotted manure, but since planting they have started looking a bit sad. They have lost some leaves, and the tops of the stems have gone brown. They have been kept well watered and are in partial shade.
Any ideas on what I can do to cheer them up? I initially thought the stems had been nibbled by rabbits. Should I prune the dying bits of stems? Is there anything I can feed them with? Or do I just need to be patient and let them get going in their own time.
