my st swithun climber is only a year and a halfish old and has been doing ok, the last 2 bits of new growth though are yellow and look brown on the ends as if scorched, wondering why and what to do? thanks in advance again

    Could be unintentional damage to the stems, or drift from a weed killer, or just weak growth. I'd prune out the affected stems water and mulch it heavily. The dry weather we've been having hasn't helped. I wouldn't be too concerned.

    thanks dave, I don't use weed killer and am gentle- I think when tying stems in with string, I mulched today with compost, then sprinkled a tiny bit of general granular feed, watered then bark on top
