Thanks for your reply and your help, it's most appreciated...
This problem has got me really stumped as I have lost 4 or 5 shrubs and a young tree
in the front garden, which were all very healthy and planted alongside the boundary fence. Now this one in the back garden which again is right up against the fence is going exactly the same way, again on my neighbours side.
I don't think it can be fungal, or anything in the ground, as it would not only affect "my" plants
, but also the ones over the fence next door...by the way, these are all still very healthy, lush, green and producing an abundance of flowers
It just seems strange that all of my plants
have died in the same way, but next doors are untouched!!
Thanks again for your time and help...
