Is my bay tree dead?
I am looking for some advice on my bay tree, which has taken a turn for the worse in the last few months. The leaves have gone brown and spotty and they are really difficult/tough to pull off the stems and it looks like there is something going on with the bark...
I think we should have probably done something long before now, but does anyone know what is wrong with it and is there any thing that can be done/tried?
We are based in cornwall so it didn't have a totally horrendous winter in terms of freezes/snow, but it was a long one and the ground it sits in did get quite wet. We also have quite acidic soil so not sure if that hinders?
I am a total novice gardener and this may be a really stupid idea (!!) but I was wondering whether digging it up and putting it in a big half barrel with the correct soil conditons would help?
Any suggestions greatly appreciated!
