#plantproblems #plantphotoadvice Is this just the aftermath of a recent frost? Top foot of new growth shrivelled but otherwise very healthy. Any #katsura #diseases I should be aware of?
Hi Craig, Don't worry I'm sure it will have just been the frost. Mine does the same every year. It will be fine. Are you getting that gorgeous smell of burnt toffee from the dead leaves?
@awomanonabike Thank you - was starting to worry - poor thing has already had its head chopped off by the neighbours fence installer (down to 60cm from the ground!)
@awomanonabike - haven't ever smelt the toffee but I'll give it a good sniff today
😳 Oh no! Seems like it has recovered from that. I hope your neighbours were as horrified as you. Mine is almost like a frost sensor - always gets caught a little and tells me by the smell, when we have had a frost 😉😊
Frost or wind or lack of water can do that damage. It'll bounce back it happened to mine last year @mypottingbenchblog
😂The smell is often just in the air. Fabulous in the autumn. But if you crush a few leaves in your hand you should get the smell. It's known as the 'burnt toffee tree' in our house 🏡😊
Thank you @awomanonabike @carolgs - feel better now. I'll tidy up the poorly bits and give it a feed and water to make it feel better.
I'm sure it will love a bit of TLC 😉😊
