I planted an exochorda x macrantha early in the summer and it has never seemed to thrive. It is in a new bed that we created in the front garden after the lawn was removed which was enriched with plenty of compost and well rotten manure. It lost its leaves very early in September but seems to have buds?
Is this something others have experience of? Can I expect it to go bald prematurely each year?
Will it survive..?
