Plants stopped growing

Barbara Fitzgerald asked 10 years ago

Border Plants along a back wall – Lavender, climbing sweet pea & other evergreen climber were thriving but now have stopped growing completely and leaves are eaten (not from edged but more lace like). I had replanted a rhododendron from other end of border closer to the affected side – would this have caused a problem? no evidence of bugs on leaves though.

This is proably a combination of dry soil that caused growth to stop, as it does late in the season anyway, but also probably a few snails feeding at night, especially near a wall where they can shelter.

The plants will finsih out the year now anyway and keep a watch next spring and summer.
