    Hi Buddyboy. This would be good news! Sadly we have had plants similar to your picture last year and they are long gone.

    i was at a Natuonal Trust Garden last week and given a hand out by the guide which is what I was using.  I see I can get a test kit.  Think that would be worth doing? What do you think is up with my plants, can they be saved? They have been fed

    Agree with Buddyboy. Your Rhode does not have Ash die back or Sudden Oak death, but is poorly. Maybe be water, too little or too much, or not in a suitable acidic soil.

    Did they tear it out with talons of steel
    And give you a shot, so that you wouldn't feel?
    And washed it away as if it wasn't real?
