Well my four remaining plumies are ailing....they are 4yrs old from seed and I was hoping to get one to flower maybe this year. Over the winter, our worst for 30 yrs they have declined. I am now loosing a lot of tips to either sunken patches that then progress to rot, or they have gone black and crispy. It's not the claws that are black as they haven't got any, its the actual end of the branch where the problem is. Not had this problem before.
What will happen if I cut off the dead tips? One has 10, another 5, one has 4 and the last only has 1 growth point. None are in leaf at the moment.
Thanks for any advice, Gill in the UK.
