wilting shrubs

finola mullins asked 10 years ago

i planted shrubs Myrtus communis ‘variegata’ and Hypercium ‘Hidcote’ last year all of which did well until recently when they’ve started to wilt. the Myrtus leaves have gone brittle and have died and the hidcote leaves are going yellow, i watered and fed them with tomato feed during the recent dry spell but they are not coming round, what can i do?

Myrtle is probably dead due to frost, but the hypericum is probably just struggling with dry weather and tomato food in dry weather does not help. No feeding until new growth begins.
