Question: can someone tell me why this Pieris is sick. It arrived through the post in the winter and has been sitting in a pot in the green house ever since.

I'm afraid it looks like it might have got too wet in the pot over winter either that or dried out weirdly both result on the same outcome, it would have been happier to have been outside or planted , it may have got a little too hot on sunny winter days in the greenhouse too ,, sorry not better news I fear it won't come back now but the bade does have some green so I would cut it back and re plant 🌱 and cross all fingers 🤞🤞🙂

Thanks #icedance . I have a second one planted and stored the same and is okay. It may have had more water than the other due to water spillage from other plants. I don't know but was concerned it may be diseased. Thanks again
